June 1, 2010 - Washington, D.C. - Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturer of such popular over-the-counter medications as Motrin and Tylenol, is currently under investigation for numerous manufacturing and quality-control issues.
The drug manufacturer's public relations and legal problems surfaced earlier this year with the announcement of a massive drug recall involving more than 40 products, including children's medications such as Tylenol, Motrin and Benadryl.
Officials from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are considering criminal charges against the company for its potentially negligent response to addressing various manufacturing defects. In addition, the U.S. Congress is investigating reports that in 2008, Johnson & Johnson tried to cover up the need for a drug recall by sending representatives of the company out to buy up tainted products circulating on the shelves.
