Recently, a South Dakota federal jury found in favor of Deane Berg in her claim that Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower caused her ovarian cancer, but declined to award any money damages to her and against Johnson and Johnson. Both parties said they were pleased with the verdict. It is believed that this suit was the first in the U.S. to claim that Talcum Powder can cause ovarian cancer.
Ms. Berg applied the power to her genital area from 1975 to 2007. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in December 2006 at the age of 49. Ms. Berg claimed that Johnson and Johnson has known for decades that studies exist linking the use of Talcum Powder to ovarian cancer but has failed to warn of this hazard to this day.
