“More than 300 lawsuits are pending in California and more than 4,500 claims in the rest of the country, alleging that the health care giant ignored studies linking its Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products to cancer.”

This news article laid out the plaintiff’s testimony.

“Echeverria testified that if Johnson & Johnson, which earned a profit of $16.5 billion last year, had put a warning on the product, she would have stopped using it.

After two days of deliberating, jurors awarded Echeverria $70 million in compensatory damages and $347 million in punitive damages.

The jury panel found there was a connection between her ovarian cancer and the baby powder.”

J&J plans an appeal.
