Johnson & Johnson says Reuters report on asbestos in baby powder is 'false and inflammatory'
Johnson & Johnson said a Reuters report alleging that the drugs and consumer products company knew that its baby powder contained the carcinogen asbestos is "one-sided, false and inflammatory." "Johnson & Johnson's baby powder is safe and asbestos-free," the company said in a statement. "Studies of more than 100,000 men and women show that talc does not cause cancer or asbestos-related disease." The company's stock was down about 9% Friday after the report was published. J&J is currently dealing with thousands of lawsuits from plaintiffs who say its baby powder gave them cancer. Reuters said the company was aware of trace elements of asbestos in the talc as early as the 1970s, but did not disclose it to regulators or the general public. The move shaved about 100 points off the Dow Jones Industrial Average , which counts J&J as a member.

Facebook Inc. on Friday disclosed an API bug that may have given third-party apps the ability to view photos that users didn't share on their timelines.
