A California jury awarded $29.4 million to a woman and her spouse who alleged that her use of Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder caused her mesothelioma. The $29.4 million was for compensatory damages. Johnson& Johnson plans to appeal this decision. No punitive damages were awarded.
There are about 14,000 cases across the country in which individuals are claiming J&J’s talc products have caused their cancer. In some cases, plaintiffs are arguing that there is asbestos in the talc and that J&J knew about the contamination for decades. In many of these cases, women are claiming that using J&J’s talcum powder in their genital areas caused their ovarian cancer.
