Johnson & Johnson to pay $148m to woman with ovarian cancer

#1  Postby the_5th_ape » May 11, 2017 6:18 pm

Johnson & Johnson was ordered by a Missouri jury to pay over $110 million ($A148m) to a Virginia woman who says she developed ovarian cancer after decades of using its talc-based products for feminine hygiene.

The verdict in state court in St Louis on Thursday was the largest so far to arise out of about 2,400 lawsuits accusing J&J of not adequately warning consumers about the cancer risks of talc-based products including its well-known Johnson's Baby Powder.

Thanking God for sparing you in a natural disaster is like
sending a thank-you note to a serial killer for stabbing the family next door
