Old Spice Talcum Powder Lawsuit Ends in $4.8 Million Jury Award

In April 2021, a jury in Los Angeles, California, awarded $4.8 million to a man with mesothelioma who used Old Spice Talcum Powder for more than 20 years.

The lawsuit was filed by Willie M., a 78-year-old Vietnam War veteran, grandfather, and retired school bus driver who used Old Spice Talcum Powder every day for 22 years.

Tragically, he was diagnosed with cancer in 2017 — malignant pleural mesothelioma, which is strongly associated with exposure to asbestos.

Lawyers presented evidence that Old Spice Talcum Power contained talc from a mine in North Carolina that is known to be contaminated with asbestos.

Furthermore, talc supplier Whittaker Clark & Daniels was accused of failing to warn consumers about the risk of mesothelioma from exposure to asbestos.

On April 15, 2021, the jury awarded him $1.8 million in compensation for his injuries, pain and suffering, and other damages, plus $3 million in punitive damages against Whittaker Clark & Daniels.

The lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of the State of California, Los Angeles County — Case No. BC698965.
