According to the Los Angeles Times, on August 21, 2017, a Los Angeles jury awarded a woman $417 million from baby powder maker Johnson & Johnson. The woman was near death from ovarian cancer. The woman had been using the product for decades. The verdict included $70 million in compensatory damages and $347 million in punitive damages. According to a lawyer for the plaintiff as quoted in the USA Today Johnson & Johnson’s own documents showed they had knowledge of the possible carcinogenic risks from the use of talcum powder for feminine hygiene for decades and never warned consumers.

If you were a consistent user of a talcum powder product such as Johnson & Johnson baby powder for feminine hygiene and have developed ovarian cancer, please consult an attorney to protect your rights. Products liability law protects Georgia consumers in these types of cases.
