Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder Settlement News
One woman has been awarded $55 million after a jury found Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder was responsible for her injuries. Reuters News reports that “the verdict, which J&J plans to appeal, was the second straight trial loss for the company, which is facing about 1,200 lawsuits accusing it of not adequately warning consumers about its talc-based products’ cancer risks.”
The evidence of talcum powder’s link to ovarian cancer has been long studied. Bloomberg News found that “researchers began linking talc to ovarian cancer in the 1970s, the family claims. Evidence in the trial will include studies by Daniel Cramer, a Harvard University professor and doctor at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, who found in 1982 that women who reported genital-talc use faced a 92 percent increase in the risk of developing ovarian cancer. Cramer, in a new study with colleagues released in December in the journal Epidemiology, concluded talc was associated with a 33 percent rise in the risk of ovarian cancer, which worsened the longer it was used.”
