The verdict was for $40 million dollars in damages according to a press release about the verdict from PR Newswire.
Contaminants found in Baby Powder
According to evidence, medical testing done on the plaintiff, Nancy Cabibi showed that she has the presence of two types of asbestos. Both types were found to be in Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products, that Ms. Cabibi has used.
A String of Trial Losses
Johnson & Johnson has been at the center of legal defeats over their talc products in recent months. In New Jersey, plaintiffs were awarded a verdict of $37 million dollars, and another $29 million dollars also out of California.
