A jury has awarded a staggering $110 million verdict to a Virginia woman who alleged she developed ovarian cancer after decades of using Johnson & Johnson talcum-based products for feminine hygiene.
The verdict is the latest in a string of mega courtroom outcomes against the consumer products giant.
Juries in three prior trials over the past 14 months have awarded a total of $197 million in similar cases involving talcum powder products and ovarian cancer. And there are about 2,400 other such cases pending across the nation.
In this latest case, a jury in Missouri sided with plaintiff Lois Slemp who is currently undergoing chemotherapy. Her cancer, originally diagnosed in 2012, has returned and spread to her liver. In her suit, the 62-year-old woman alleged she developed ovarian cancer after using J&J’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products on her genital area for feminine hygiene daily for four decades.
