A bankruptcy administrator overseeing the chapter 11 case of a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary on Thursday asked a judge to appoint an official committee for people alleging talc in the company's products caused cancer or other injuries.

U.S. Bankruptcy Administrator Shelley Abel said in a filing in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Charlotte, N.C., that she's received responses from more than 50 parties expressing interest in joining a talc injury committee that would have a role in the bankruptcy case.

J&J undertook a corporate restructuring earlier this month that effectively shifted nearly 40,000 talc injury claims to the Charlotte bankruptcy court.

Ms. Abel previously sought to transfer the bankruptcy to J&J's home state of New Jersey, a request a bankruptcy judge is scheduled to consider next month.
