Feb 24, 2016 – Family Of Jacqueline Fox Alabama Woman Killed By Ovarian Cancer After Using Johnson & Johnson Talc Baby Power Gets $72 Million Compensation

Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay $72 million compensation to the family of Jacqueline Fox , a woman whose death was linked to her daily routine of using Johnson & Johnson talc-based powder for feminine hygiene.

The deceased who died of ovarian cancer last year October at age 62 used the product for over 35 years before being diagnosed with ovarian cancer 3 years before her death.

In a verdict announced late Monday night, jurors in the circuit court of St. Louis awarded the family of Jacqueline Fox $10 million of actual damages and $62 million of punitive damages, according to the family’s lawyers and court records.

Johnson & Johnson admitted that it failed to warn consumers that the product could cause cancer in an effort to boost sales.

Over 1200 similar cases have been filed across the United States.

    I love this judgemnt! Look how wicked the world can be! You can be sure that the advert for that product was so positive that a consumer might think she would age no more if she used the powder.

    A LOT OF PRODUCTS ARE VERY DANGEROUS , IT IS BETTER TO USE PALM OIL OR ,,ADINAGBO,, TO RUB YOUR BODY THAN ALL THESE OYINBO PRODUCT, THEY ARE FULL OF CHEMICALS.

    THEY ARE THE ONE CAUSING ALL SORT OF ILLNESS IN THE BODY. IT IS BETTER I USE ,, ADIN AAGBO. COCONUT OIL. IS BETTER.

    I believe you all know what the writer meant by ‘female hygiene’. What prompted her to be putting powder on her private part for 35 years? What will be will be.
