Lawsuit Won In Favor of the Plaintiff
The first talc baby powder cancer lawsuit was won in 2013. A federal jury recently found that talcum contained in some Johnson & Johnson powders contributed to a woman’s ovarian cancer.
The plaintiff in this case was diagnosed with ovarian cancer after about 30 years of using Shower-to-Shower body powder-as part of her personal hygiene routine. The jury found that Johnson & Johnson failed to warn her of a link between the use of talc-based powder for feminine hygiene and an increased risk of ovarian cancer.
This outcome sets the stage for thousands of women who have developed ovarian cancer after using talc-based products.
