Although Johnson & Johnson are defending they products and remain confident that there is no asbestos in there products, surely not worth the risk.
Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay nearly US $4.7 billion in damages to 22 women and their families, in the company’s latest talc-related lawsuit.
Plaintiffs claimed that alleged asbestos in the company’s talcum powder contributed to their ovarian cancer; the case's St. Louis circuit court jury awarded $4.14 billion in punitive damages, along with $550 million in compensatory damages. The trial lasted six weeks.
This is not the first time a jury has ruled against J&J regarding their talcum powder. The company has successfully appealed past verdicts, including a recent $417 million Los Angeles ruling that resulted in the company being granted a new trial due to insufficient evidence and jury misconduct.
