Talcum Powder Verdict discussed on WSFA

A landmark verdict against Johnson & Johnson found the consumer products giant liable for the ovarian cancer death of Jacqueline Fox, saying the company’s talcum powder products were to blame. Ms. Fox died in October 2015. She used Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower Body Powder for 35 years. Beasley Allen Principal & Founder Jere Beasley told WSFA that the jury heard evidence that Johnson & Johnson knew of the increased risk of ovarian cancer for women who use talc products for feminine hygiene, but failed to warn consumers. “Every woman has the right to make an informed decision,” Mr. Beasley said. “But they’ve got to have the information before they can do it.” The jury awarded Ms. Fox’s family $10 million in actual damages, and $62 million in punitive damages, $1 million for every year of her life.
