Woman awarded over $70 million after carcinogenic Johnson &Johnson baby powder caused her cancer.

An American lady, Deborah Giannecchini on Thursday was granted more than $70 million in her claim that Johnson and Johnson's baby powder caused her cancer.

The trial which started in Sept 26 after she was diagnosed to have ovarian cancer in 2012, saw the Jury at the St. Louis Circuit Court blame the firm for 'negligent conduct' to fail to caution the general population of the cancerous risks of their product.


Carol Goodrich, a representative with Johnson and Johnson, said the firm will file an appeal in response to the court granting Deborah Giannecchini $70 million.

‘We deeply sympathize with the women and families impacted by ovarian cancer, we will appeal today's verdict because we are guided by the science, which supports the safety of Johnson's Baby Powder.’
