A New Jersey Banker and his wife beat Johnson and Johnson and a Talc Mining company in the amount of $37 Million. Here’s what you need to know.
Talc itself is not cancerous, but the method and location of the the talc mining was frequently near mining areas containing ASBESTOS. You know how a food product may contain information like “Made in a Factory that also processes nuts”. You read that information and, if you have a peanut allergy, you avoid the product. No harm done.
In this case Johnson and Johnson and the Talc Mining company both knew there were risks to people utilizing their Talcum. But at know time did either company want to cut into their hefty profits . “Talcum, mined in an area that contains Aebestos” Ya think the misleading companies cared enough to be forthcoming and honest to their customer base.
