On Wednesday, a California jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $29 million to a woman who alleged that asbestos in the company’s talcum-powder-based products caused her mesothelioma.
J&J denies allegations that its talc causes cancer, saying numerous studies and tests by regulators worldwide have shown that its talc is safe and asbestos-free.
The New Jersey-based company is likely to appeal the verdict, which was made in California Superior Court in Oakland.
