Johnson & Johnson (JNJ.N) was ordered by a U.S. jury on Monday to pay $55 million (37 million pounds) to a woman who said that using the company’s talc-powder products for feminine hygiene caused her to develop ovarian cancer. Following a three-week trial in Missouri state court, jurors deliberated for about a day before returning a verdict for Gloria Ristesund. Ristesund said she used J&J’s talc-based powder products – which include the well-known Baby Powder and Shower to Shower Powder – on her genitals for decades.
