What’s the Problem?
July 12, 2016 – According to the lawsuit, Plaintiff Dolores Gould was diagnosed in 2006 with uterine cancer as the result of her prolonged use of Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower body powder. Gould holds J&J responsible because the company allegedly failed to provide adequate warnings about the risk of applying talcum powder to the genital area even after a study had found that it could cause cancer.
The complaint was filed last Friday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California under case number 3:16-cv-03838-DMR. Defendants include Johnson & Johnson and Johnson & Johnson Consumer Cos., who are alleged to have failed to warn, strict liability, negligence and other counts. Gould is seeking a jury trial and compensatory damages of $75,000, economic damages, punitive and/or exemplary damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just.
