"Despite maintaining all along that the company’s talcum powder products were safe to use, Johnson & Johnson issued a recall of the company’s baby powder after the Food & Drug Administration detected a type of asbestos in a product sample in October 2019. Asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral, is a known carcinogen," according to National Law Review.
The article continues on to say, "A 2017 trial held in Los Angeles County Superior Court resulted in a $417 million jury award, for example. In July 2018, a Missouri jury awarded a group of 22 plaintiffs nearly $4.7 billion, according to Reuters (that amount was later reduced to $2.12 billion by the Missouri Court of Appeals)."
