Missouri Trial Judge Upholds $4.6 Billion Asbestos Talcum Powder Lawsuit Verdict

St. Louis Jury Hands Down Substantial $550 Million in Asbestos Talcum Powder Lawsuit

How Does Someone Get Cancer From Talcum Powder?

Juries continue to rule against Johnson and Johnson, a major producer of talcum powder, in lawsuits brought by women with cancer who contend that the talc asbestos in the powder has caused it. J&J claims that its famous baby powder has never contained asbestos. However, juries have found the talcum powder industry's defense less compelling than the plaintiffs'. A Missouri court has ordered J&J to compensate more than twenty women who contracted ovarian cancer after using talcum powder, for a total of over $4.6 billion in damages.
