According to an article published by
Bloomberg Business, Johnson & Johnson is being held responsible to pay $72 million to
family members of a woman who experienced fatal injuries after using the
talcum powder produced by the company. The woman’s family stated
the products, baby powder and an additional talc-based product, caused
the women to develop ovarian cancer. This was the first case that went to trial.
The total of $72 million was comprised of the following:
- $10 million for compensatory damages
- $62 million for punitive damages
Sources state Johnson & Johnson was aware of the potential risks their
talc-based products produced, especially for women. However, the company
continued to leave consumers unwarned. Currently, Johnson & Johnson
is facing roughly 1,200 lawsuits, which all claim that the company’s
baby powder and the Shower-to-Shower products all lead to the development
of ovarian cancer.
