A woman in California was recently awarded a $12 million dollar verdict in the latest lawsuit involving Johnson & Johnson and Colgate-Palmolive talcum products.
The 61-year old woman claims her frequent use of J&J talcum products such as Shower to Shower and Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder contain asbestos. She claims the asbestos is what led her to develop mesothelioma according to an article from Legal Scoops.
Colgate-Palmolive Also Involved
This is one of the first cases where Colgate-Palmolive has been named as a defendant in these types of cases. The woman claims her use of Colgate’s Cashmere Bouquet product was also a factor in her diagnosis. Cashmere Bouquet was marketed as a type of talcum powder, however it was also manufactured as a soap product.
More Legal Battles Ahead
Johnson & Johnson still face over 13,000 pending lawsuits over claims their talcum powder causes individuals to develop mesothelioma and/or ovarian cancer with frequent use.
