Jury awards $70 million in talcum powder lawsuit against J&J.

ABC World News Tonight (10/28, story 10, 0:25, Muir, 14.63M) reported that a jury in St. Louis awarded a woman $70 million “after she sued Johnson & Johnson, alleging that years of using the company’s iconic baby powder had caused ovarian cancer.” According to NBC Nightly News, (10/28, story 8, 2:15, Holt, 16.61M) this is the “fourth time” a jury has held “that Johnson & Johnson failed to inform the public about a possible link between ovarian cancer” and talcum powder. Johnson & Johnson “is appealing three decisions, including nearly $200 million in damages.” USA Today (10/28, Yu, 6.42M) reported that while “some studies suggest a link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer,” most scientists “say it’s not clear yet whether products containing talc can cause the disease.” Additional coverage is provided by the AP (10/28) and the NBC News (10/28, 5.08M) website.
