A California jury on Wednesday ordered New Jersey based pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson to pay $29 million to a woman who claimed its baby powder caused her to contract terminal cancer, USA Today reported.

The report noted that the lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson is one of many accusing the company of hiding its products’ health risks for decades. The suits allege that cancer was linked to asbestos in the company’s talc-based products. 

Johnson & Johnson, the largest health-care company in the world, has reportedly been hit with about 13,000 lawsuits related to those issues.
