Johnson & Johnson must pay cancer-stricken woman $29mn in latest talcum trial

"Studies of more than 100,000 men and women show that talc does not cause cancer or asbestos-related disease".

Wednesday's ruling also comes about a year after 22 women were awarded $4.7 billion from the company after they claimed the company's products caused them to develop ovarian cancer.

Johnson & Johnson is facing over 13,000 more cases stemming from asbestos-contaminated talcum powder.

The New Jersey-based company is likely to appeal the verdict, which was made in California Superior Court in Oakland. The jury decided against awarding punitive damages, which are created to punish the defendants - in this case Johnson & Johnson and the other companies involved in making the talcum powder - for reckless or negligent behavior.

NBC reports the company has "lost a string of court cases", including one previous year in Los Angeles, California, where a jury awarded a woman $25.7 million after claiming the baby powder caused her cancer.

"We are disappointed with today's verdict and will pursue an appeal because Johnson's Baby Powder does not contain asbestos or cause cancer", Kim Montagnino, a J&J spokeswoman, said in an emailed statement. This track record shows that there are one set of facts in these cases, and that decades of tests by independent, non-litigation driven experts and institutions repeatedly confirm that Johnson's Baby Powder does not contain asbestos or cause cancer.

"We respect the legal process and reiterate that jury verdicts are not medical, scientific or regulatory conclusions about a product", Johnson & Johnson said in a statement.

J&J has appealed all of the plaintiff verdicts, and the company said it is confident the verdicts would be overturned on appeal. Cypress Mines, one of J&J's former talc suppliers, is answerable for the remaining 2 percent.

Her lawyers noted that internal J&J documents indicated officials knew since the 1970s baby powder mined in places such as Vermont and Italy contained trace amounts of asbestos, but failed to alert consumers or regulators.

Nonetheless, 2018 investigations from the New York Times and Reuters suggested that the company feared for decades that some of its Baby Powder could be tainted by asbestos, a type of carcinogenic mineral that has been linked to cancers of lungs, larynx and ovaries, as well as mesothelioma, according to the National Cancer Institute.
