(Adds company comment)
-- A New York jury said Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) must pay $25 million to a woman who claims she got cancer by using the company's products, Bloomberg reports Tuesday.
-- The woman alleged she got a rare type of cancer, linked to asbestos, from some of the company's products which contain talc, the report said.
-- The $25 million is for compensatory damages, and the jury will reconvene next week to consider a punitive penalty, the report said.
-- Johnson & Johnson has denied all allegations that its baby powder contained asbestos.
-- Johnson & Johnson said "This trial suffered significant legal and evidentiary errors," adding it had moved for a mistrial. The company also said "we believe these errors will warrant a reversal on appeal."
