A Los Angeles jury has awarded a record sum to a woman who says talc-based baby powder gave her ovarian cancer.
Johnson and Johnson will have to pay Eva Echeverria $417 million. The verdict marks the largest sum awarded in a series of lawsuits against a company across the U.S.
She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2007 and continues to receive treatment.
