ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay the $72 million in damages to the family of a woman who died of cancer in 2015. The family says her death was a direct result of the company's talcum powder.
Jackie Fox, 62, passed away two years after being diagnosed with the illness. Her family says she used the product for well over 50 years.
Although the family believes Johnson & Johnson was aware of the dangers associated with talcum, the company says their product is safe.
Scientists are still at odds over the potential risks of talc and the American Cancer Society isn't clear if products containing the powder increase cancer risk.
Normally used to absorb moisture, the product is considered cosmetic and does not require FDA approval.
