Johnson & Johnson loses third lawsuit related to talcum powder and ovarian cancer
Johnson & Johnson, who is currently facing accusations in over 1,700 lawsuits alleging that they ignored studies linking their talcum powder products to ovarian cancer, lost a lawsuit that saw a Saint Louis jury award a California woman over $72 million in damages on Thursday. This is the third lawsuit related to Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and shower-to-shower products potentially causing ovarian cancer.
According to multiple reports, Deborah Giannecchini, 62, used Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder for over 4 decades. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer three years ago, and unfortunately doctors have informed her that she has over a 90% chance of dying over the next two years.
In May of this year, a three-week Missouri trial resulted in a woman who also used Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder, and who also developed ovarian cancer, being awarded $55 million in damages. This follows a February lawsuit which saw Johnson & Johnson responsible once again for their baby powder products being linked with ovarian cancer. The woman in the February trial died as a result of ovarian cancer, and the court awarded her family $72 million as a result.
Did you know thousands of women and their families have filed a claim against Johnson & Johnson for failing to warn them of the risk of ovarian cancer when using Baby Powder?
