Report Claims Johnson & Johnson Knew Tylenol Children’s Product Was Tainted

Posted on May 5, 2010 2:45pm PDT

According to a recent report from "Natural News," the massive recall by McNeil Consumer Healthcare (a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson) of its infant and children's line of Tylenol products is proving to be even more vicious. The FDA found that the drugs were contaminated with dangerous bacteria, as well as foreign materials that appeared as black specks. In a recent story published by USA Today, it has been revealed that McNeil actually knew about the bacterial contamination but kept shipping the products anyway.

The recent FDA report specified that the drug doses were also not properly formulated by McNeil in its infant and children' medicines, which was part of the reason for the recall. Incorrect concentrations of active ingredients in medicines like these puts potentially millions of children at risk.
