One of our law firm's goals is to spread news about defective products, especially from companies who have made health mistakes in the past. Recently, we have been discussing rumors surrounding Johnson & Johnson and their employees who have been involved in the mass-tort implant cases. Did you know that Johnson & Johnson are recalling more errors after trying to recover its image from other past quality control negligence? Are you suffering from injuries related to Risperdal or Children's Motrin?
One article explains that on Wednesday, J&J's pharmaceutical unit brought up evidence of mold contaminations in Risperdal Consta during a routine testing process. There are 420 lawsuits against J&J and Jansen, regarding to the allegations of personal injuries related to Risperdal. According to the New York Times, Johnson & Johnson recalls that there were tiny particles of plastic in 200,000 bottles of liquid Motrin for infants last week. These two manufacturing problems within a short span in between seem to threaten patients and their company's image as well. In May, J&J discovered high levels of acetaminophen in Children's Tylenol in South Korea and that in three other countries, Millions of packs of birth-control pills had hormones that were not being released properly into the body. Bloomberg.com indicated earlier that J&J are facing about 130 cases corresponding to allegations that Risperdal had caused males to develop breasts.
Can we consumers depend on one of the world's most trusted brands? J&J recalled millions of defected products or products that have not yet mandated regulatory approvals as of this year. Well chief executive replacements have taken place and officials of Johnson & Johnson are planning to return most of the company's over-the-counter brands to pharmacy shelves by the end of the year while meeting the F.D.A.'s requirements under the consent decree. Since Johnson & Johnson are under a lot of scrutiny, they are focusing a lot on the quality of their products.
