A circuit court jury Monday found that a woman died of toxic shock syndrome after using a tampon and awarded her family compensatory damages of $905,750.
A lawyer representing the estate of Donna Davis, who died in 1978, charged that she died of toxic shock syndrome after using O.B. Tampons, made by Johnson & Johnson.
A spokesman said the company plans to appeal the verdict, disputing that the woman died of toxic shock or used O.B. Tampons.
