LOS ANGELES — A California woman has been awarded more than $70 million in a lawsuit, claiming Johnson & Johnson’s controversial baby powder reportedly caused her to develop ovarian cancer.
Deborah Giannecchini, of Modesto, California, had used baby powder for years for feminine hygiene, according to NBC News.
“It’s been a long-fought battle,” said Giannecchini, who was 59 when she was diagnosed in 2012. “I was just elated, so relieved it was over. I felt like I accomplished something. … There were happy tears and just joy.”
After Giannecchini was diagnosed in November 2012, her daughter saw an ad on television offering legal representation to people who used talcum powder and had ovarian cancer.
USA Today reported Johnson & Johnson continues to state that their product is perfectly safe.
“We deeply sympathize with the women and families impacted by ovarian cancer,” a Johnson and Johnson spokeswoman said in a statement. “We will appeal today’s verdict because we are guided by the science, which supports the safety of Johnson’s Baby Powder.”
More than 2,000 women have filed lawsuits against the baby powder manufacturer.
“I hope that Johnson & Johnson will step up and take responsibility and post a warning of their product that says this is not as safe as you may think it is and think about it before you decide to use this product,” Giannecchini told NBC News.
Earlier this year, there were two other lawsuits conducted in St.Louis that ended with the jury awarding more than $127 million to the accusers. However, two lawsuits filed in New Jersey were recently thrown out by a judge who claimed there wasn’t enough reliable evidence that talcum powder leads to ovarian cancer.
