Johnson & Johnson Shower to Shower
But in Missouri, a state juries ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $55 million to a South Dakota woman with ovarian cancer and $72 million to the family of Jacqueline Fox, an Alabama woman whose death from ovarian cancer last October was linked to her long-term use of the company’s talc-based baby powder and Shower to Shower.
That court decision comes more than two years after a federal jury in South Dakota concluded that Johnson & Johnson was negligent in failing to warn consumers that Shower to Shower is possibly carcinogenic. Though the court awarded no damages in the South Dakota case, the allegations closely mirrored those brought by Fox, that using Shower to Shower for more than 30 years contributed to her ovarian cancer.
