What’s the problem?
September 20, 2010 – In April of this year, Johnson & Johnson recalled 136 million bottles of Children’s and Infant’s Motrin, Benadryl, Tylenol and Zyrtec for quality issues. A congressional investigation has revealed that another so-called phantom recall was launched almost a year earlier back in June of 2009.
During that recall, J&J hired a subcontractor to quietly purchase thousands of Motrin tablets without notifying the public of a potential problem. The question now is whether another similar and much larger phantom recall was also carried out involving Children’s Tylenol.
