Here are $417,000,000 reasons not to use talc in baby powder:
A Los Angeles jury awarded a woman a $417 million verdict yesterday. The jury found that Johnson & Johnson failed to adequately warn users of the cancer risks of the talc in its baby powder.
The jury’s 9-3 vote to hold J&J liable for not warning Eva Echeverria about cancer risks is a huge blow to the company, which is facing thousands of such claims across the country. The verdict consists of $70 million in compensatory damages and $347 million in punitive damages, according to Reuters.
Apparently, there are 5,000 lawsuits to follow on this.
Why do people continue to buy products from big corporations who fill their products with dangerous chemicals?
This “dusting powder” is a great baby powder alternative – chemical free.
