Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder/Ovarian Cancer Lawsuit

Talcum powder is a frequently used feminine hygiene product. Unfortunately, recent studies and lawsuits show that those who use these products are at risk of developing ovarian cancer. In August of 2017, a woman by the name of Eva Echeverria was hospitalized and claimed that the use of Johnson & Johnson talcum powder caused her to develop ovarian cancer. As a result, Echeverria ultimately won the case, and Johnson & Johnson had to pay a record settlement sum of $417 million. Echeverria, however, was not the only woman to file a claim for the link of Johnson & Johnson talcum powder and ovarian cancer.
