Talcum Powder Lawsuits Against Johnson & Johnson Facing Lawsuits
Thousands of lawsuits have been filed against J&J to seek damages against for their failure to warn women about the risk of ovarian cancer. J&J has lost multiple landmark talcum powder cases where plaintiffs were awarded millions in damages.
August 2017 – Los Angeles jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $417 million to a woman suffering from ovarian cancer linked to the use of baby powder.
May 2017 – Missouri jury awarded $110 million to a Virginia woman.
October 2016 – Jury in Saint Louis awarded more than $70 million in damages to a 62-year-old California woman. The woman claimed her diagnosis to ovarian cancer was a result to her regular use of Johnson & Johnson talcum powder.
May 2016 – St. Louis jury awarded $55 million in damages to another woman who was a long-term J&J talc user and developed ovarian cancer.
February 2016 – Jury in St. Louis awarded $72 million in damages to the estate of a woman who died of ovarian cancer following regular genital talc use.
In all of these cases, juries found a clear link between regular use of talcum powder on the genital area and ovarian cancer. Over 1,200 lawsuits are now pending against J&J for their failure to warn women about the health risks of long-term talcum powder use for personal hygiene.
When used on a regular basis, talc particles can be released in the female gentile area, traveling up through the fallopian tubes, settling in the ovaries. Over time the talc particles can cause cancerous cells to form leading to tumors and ovarian cancer.
Johnson and Johnson continuously failed to warn women of the dangers associated with talcum powder use. They did not add warning labels to these products and by withholding this information, the company put thousands at risk for developing ovarian cancer.
