A Court in St. Louis, Missouri has ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay over $110 million to a Virginia woman, who claims she developed ovarian cancer after decades of using its talcum powder.  In May 2016, J & J lost another case over talcum powder leading to cancer when a jury awarded $55 million to the plaintiff.

Nearly 2,400 lawsuits accuse the company of insufficient warning to consumers about cancer risks connected to products containing talc.
