Ovarian Cancer linked to Baby Powder!

- By: Knox Boteler Date : Feb 25, 2016

A St. Louis jury recently returned a verdict of $72 million for a woman who developed ovarian cancer after regularly using talcum powder products for feminine hygiene. These products were made and sold by Johnson & Johnson and are called Baby Powder and Shower to Shower body powder. The verdict includes $10 million in actual damages and $62 million in punitive damages. The jury found Johnson & Johnson guilty of negligence, conspiracy and fraud. Internal documents introduced at trial revealed that Johnson & Johnson knew of the link between ovarian cancer and its products but hid it from the public. Testimony showed that as many as 1,500 women per year may die of ovarian cancer linked to Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and Shower to Shower. If you or someone you love has developed ovarian cancer after regularly using these products, we would welcome an opportunity to review this situation and further discuss the status of these claims and cases.
