What’s the problem?
February 18, 2011 – In what seems to be yet another woe for troubled pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson, the company announced this week that it is now recalling nearly 400 injection pens in the U.S. and Germany that are pre-loaded with Simponi, a rheumatoid-arthritis drug. The pens in question, which may not deliver a full dose of the medicine due to a manufacturing problem, were made at a plant in Switzerland. As an alternative, patients are being advised to use pre-filled syringes of Simponi.
The Simponi recall is just the latest in a series of product recalls at J&J due to manufacturing-quality lapses, which have hurt sales and damaged the company’s once sterling reputation. The biggest impact has been on J&J’s over-the-counter medicine brands including Children’s Tylenol, Motrin, & Benadryl. For a comprehensive list of the products currently being recalled by Johnson & Johnson, go to the McNeil Product Recall Information website.
