Los Angeles, California—California’s first trial alleging that Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder products (Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower Powder) have caused ovarian cancer in women who use the products for feminine hygiene will begin today in the Los Angeles Superior Court.

In a pre-trial ruling, the judge presiding over the case dismissed claims against Imery’s Talc, the company that supplies Johnson & Johnson with mined talc.  The case will, however, proceed against the pharmaceutical giant.

Eva Echeverria claims that her ovarian cancer was caused by long-term use of Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder products.

More than 3,000 lawsuits presently are pending against Johnson & Johnson in various state and federal courts throughout the United States.  All have raised claims similar to those of Ms. Echverria.

Five trials already have been concluded in Missouri state courts.  Plaintiffs were awarded substantial verdicts against Johnson & Johnson in four of them.  One trial was decided in favor of the Company.
