As the long list of Johnson and Johnson products continue to make their way to the recall radar of Do Of I Have A Lawsuit , the company continues to face FDA recall demands for poor manufacturing practices at several plants where everything from children's Tylenol to children's Motrin are either mixed , packaged or labeled.
Earlier this year, Johnson and Johnson subsidiary McNeil Consumer Health care recalled multiple over the counter drugs such as Motrin Junior Strength tablets and Children's Tylenol. These recalls led to many of our readers submitting their case and filing Tylenol Lawsuits.
In most instances the general public were unaware of FDA report that cited the Johnson and Johnson McNeil plant in Puerto Rico for a number of problems including:
Distribution of drugs that failed quality requirements
Failure to identify product defects during routine testing Failure to detect incorrect expiration dates on drug labels Failure to adequately investigate product problems
Failure to follow laboratory controls and inadequate training of lab staff.
These failings at the Tylenol manufacturing plant were found a year after the FDA officials sent a letter to the president of Johnson And Johnson subsidiary McNeil warning of serious manufacturing negligence at the Puerto Rico plant. Obviously Johnson and Johnson ignored the letter and continues to place the health of the general public at risk with poor quality control protocols and defective products as shown with the recent Johnson And Johnson Depuy Hip Replacement Implant Recall.
Federal law requires that United States based drug manufactures meet certain minimum manufacturing standards based on FDA guidelines and Johnson and Johnson Tylenol and Motrin producing plants continue to fail in meeting these most basic guidelines.
This most recent Tylenol Recall Lawsuit comes on the heels of numerous Johnson and Johnson recalls this year alone. Other recalls include:
136 million bottles of liquid children's Tylenol and other pediatric products, made at a plant in Fort Washington, Pa during an April 2010 recall
The January Johnson and Johnson recall of Tylenol, Motrin and other products made at the Puerto Rico plant.
These serious nature of these recalls has prompted a criminal investigation by the F.D.A. office of criminal investigations as well a an independent investigation by a United States Congressional committee.
