What’s the Problem?
August 22, 2017 – The verdict, reached after a nearly 1-month trial in Los Angeles Superior Court, includes $347 million in punitive damages against J&J, according to USA Today.
Plaintiff Eva Echeverria alleged that J&J was aware of the potential cancer risk with its talcum powder products when used for feminine hygiene, but failed to adequately warn the public. It was the latest among several verdicts against J&J, with about 2,000 women having filed similar complaints against the company.
Echeverria claims she used Johnson’s Baby Powder almost daily for more than 4 decades, even after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2007. It was only in February 2016, when she says saw a news report about another woman who’d filed a complaint alleging the disease from J&J’s talcum powder products, that Echeverria finally stopped using them.
The massive verdict follows 4 other trials in St. Louis which yielded similar outcomes — with juries awarding damages of $110.5 million, $72 million, $70.1 million and $55 million, for a combined total of $307.6 million.
