A woman from California who sued Johnson and Johnson for causing her ovarian cancer – has been awarded $415 million dollars – by jury in Los Angeles.

Eva Echeverria had alleged that the company failed to adequately warn consumers about the potential risks – of regularly applying talcum powder for feminine hygiene.

Johnson and Johnson plans to appeal the decision.

The company has lost a number of cases – including one in St. Louis in which it was ordered to pay $110.5-million dollars to a woman who had used talcum powder – and was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012.
