Once again, the pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson is in the news for a potential product liability. The Weston Personal Injury Attorneys have recently been made aware that Johnson & Johnson is recalling several of its Rolaids products because of reports of foreign objects within the over the counter medicine. Claims have reported findings of metal and wood particles inside of the Rolaids products. Several of the products they manufacture have been identified as being potentially dangerous; including Rolaids extra strength soft chews; Rolaids extra strength plus gas soft chews; and Rolaids multi-symptom plus anti-gas soft chews.
Yet it appears as though Johnson & Johnson is apparently denying responsibility. They are alleging that foreign matter in their drugs may have been potentially introduced into the products by an outside manufacturer. Nevertheless, Johnson & Johnson has allegedly suspended production of the questionable products.
Johnson & Johnson is no stranger to product liability failure cases. Furthermore, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a division of Johnson and Johnson has had to recall literally millions of its bottles of the popular over the counter drug Tylenol due to alleged manufacturing flaws. The Food and Drug Administration issued a report citing a myriad of issues with regards to quality failures, failure to identify product defects during testing, failure to discern improper expiration dates on labels, inappropriate investigations and below adequate training of lab staff as well as for failure to obey laboratory controls. The FDA had issued a warning letter to the manufacturer earlier this year on January 15, 2010 by certified mail, discussing specific violations that were observed during the inspections, including the manufacturer’s failure to investigate or control discrepancies in violation of 21 CFR Section 211.192. There were concerns of “uncharacteristic odor” complaints, possibly associated with gastrointestinal distress and that allegedly several of the pharmaceutical manufacturer’s over the counter drug products may have had contamination in the product or the bottles. A contaminant referred to as degradant of 2,4,6 Tribromophenol (TBP).
