Tylenol Recall, (CNNMoney) – a division of Johnson & Johnson McNeil has announced the recall of certain products of the brand Tylenol Friday after a review of procedures for cleaning in a factory in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania
Conducted in consultation with the Food and Drug Administration, the recall involves certain batches of Tylenol 8 hour Tylenol Arthritis Pain and Tylenol upper respiratory products, and some Benadryl, Sudafed PE Sinutab and products.
The latest recall comes after a review of McNeil Fort Washington plant, which was closed due to its production problems since early May, found equipment cleaning procedures were inadequate or that the cleaning was not enough documented.
It is “very unlikely” that the product quality was affected and consumers or providers of health care require no action. Consumers can continue using the product, Johnson & Johnson said in a statement.
The recall affects over 45 million products, a spokeswoman for the company said.
The drugs were produced by the ailing enterprise division McNeil, who was sued for over a year by a series of recalls and critical control actions by the Food and Drug Administration and federal legislators.
Wednesday, Oregon became the first state to file a complaint against J & J on a “ghost” recall drug Motrin.
The lawsuit alleges that the division of McNeil Motrin sold defective drugs in gas stations and convenience stores in 2008 and secretly removed the products from store shelves.
On Friday, an inquest heard CNNMoney multi-state in the handling of Johnson & Johnson recalls of drugs is underway.
People familiar with the investigation confirmed the probes. At least 14 states are involved in the effort, according to a source. Johnson & Johnson declined comment.
