Johnson & Johnson to Pay a Record $417 Million In Lawsuit Linking Baby Powder to Ovarian Cancer

A Los Angeles jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $417 million to a woman suffering from ovarian cancer linked to the use of baby powder. The baby powder is linked to ovarian cancer when used regularly as a feminine hygiene product.

The company that continuously failed to warn consumers of the potential risks associated with their product has had multiple warning bells over the years.

Eva Echeverria’s lawsuit is the largest sum awarded in a series of lawsuits filed against Johnson & Johnson. The $417 million dollar verdict included $68 million in compensatory damages and $340 million awarded in punitive damages.

Eva is currently receiving cancer treatments while remaining in the hospital. The evidence against J&J includes internal documents from multiple decades showing that the use of Johnson & Johnson was a direct cause of ovarian cancer and that the company was aware of the risks.
