Natasha Singer’s “Children’s Tylenol and Other Drugs Recalled” in May 1, 2010’s New York Times the recall of many of Johnson and Johnsons over-the-counter drugs has been reported on. A single unit of the company decided to recall seven of its drug products as soon as they realized there was there was a lack in quality and deficiency in some of their products. Some products may contain greater amounts of the active drug than required while other products are lacking in quality where there is excess non-active material and in some cases, metal shavings. Johnson and Johnson made the recall on all flavors and sizes for all seven products.
While I don’t think it’s great that Johnson and Johnson have quality issues with important things like drugs for children, I am very happy to see that the company realized there was a quality issue so fast. Clearly they are capable of making mistakes like everyone else but you can tell that they take pride in making sure that quality products make it out to the buyers. If they didn’t care, they would have left the bad products on the market and possibly ignored the lack of quality.
