Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay AED 202 million in talc powder trial

Johnson & Johnson will have to pay $55 million (AED 202 million) to a woman who said that the company’s talc powder products caused her to develop ovarian cancer. J&J plans to appeal the verdict by a US jury. It was the second straight trial loss for the company, which currently faces about 1,200 lawsuits. Many of the cases are about the lack of warning to consumers about its talc-based products.
