Johnson & Johnson Must Pay 72 Million for Talcum Powder Case Tied to Ovarian Cancer

Share this post:

Johnson and Johnson is facing about 1,200 law suits claiming studies have linked its Johnson’s Baby Powder and its Shower-to-Shower product to ovarian cancer.

This week jurors in St. Louis awarded the family of Jackie Fox, who died of ovarian cancer last year after using Johnson’s baby powder and another talc-based product for years, $10 million in compensatory damages and $62 million in a punishment award. This is the first case in which a jury has awarded damages over Johnson & Johnson’s talc products.
