J&J announced midtrial today that they had agreed to settle with a plaintiff who claims that J&J talc contained asbestos which caused the plaintiff to develop mesothelioma.
The California court was one of the first to hear testimony regarding the FDA’s findings from October, in which the agency confirmed to have found chrysotile asbestos in a blind test of J&J talc products.
J&J subsequently announced that its own independent testing found no asbestos in its talc product line.
The California trial was set to be the first talc lawsuit in which the jury would be able to weigh in on the FDA’s findings. Because of the settlement, the jury will no longer be able to issue an opinion on the matter.
Linda and Mark O’Hagan, spouses and plaintiffs in the California talc lawsuit, claim that Linda developed mesothelioma in August 2018 as a result of asbestos present in J&J baby powder.
