Johnson & Johnson Recalls Yet Another Product

In recent months, health care product manufacturer Johnson & Johnson has been the subject of multiple recalls and products liability lawsuits after numerous complaints about several of the company's products ranging from children's pain relievers to birth control medication to artificial hips. Because of these seemingly continual product malfunctions, it hardly even seems newsworthy when a new Johnson & Johnson recall is announced. However, the importance of the items manufactured by the company - medication, infant and child care products, health care necessities - it is important to continue to pay attention when Johnson & Johnson announces yet another recall, as it did late last week.

Study: Children's ER Visits Down After Cold Medicine Recalls

In October 2007, manufacturers of over-the-counter cough and cold medicines for the very youngest of children voluntarily withdrew all such products from store shelves after numerous complaints that the products posed a safety risk to infants and children. Pediatricians stated that the products were ineffective in young children, and were prone to accidental overdoses resulting in extreme drowsiness, an increased heart rate, and even deaths. Seeking to avoid products liability lawsuits and bad press, manufacturers voluntarily took cough and cold medicines, mostly syrups, off the shelves.
