Cornwall ON – People talk about issues with generic drugs and preference to name brand drugs, but what happens when a drug company has repeated recalls?

Johnson & Johnson, makers of brands such as Tylenol have been hit hard in 2010.    The latest impacting their McNeil Consumer Healthcare products.

LINK 1 “…is voluntarily recalling, at the wholesale level, certain lots of TYLENOL® 8 Hour, TYLENOL® Arthritis Pain, and TYLENOL® upper respiratory products, and certain lots of BENADRYL®, SUDAFED PE®, and SINUTAB® products distributed in the United States, the Caribbean, and Brazil. These products were manufactured at the McNeil plant in Fort Washington, PA prior to April 2010, when production at the facility was suspended.”

LINK 2 Tylenol, Benadryl, Sudafed SE, Sinutab, Rolaids, click link to see full list as it’s lengthy.

Frankly it’s just plain scary, and perhaps much more needs to be done to protect consumers although if recalls are happening at least we know what’s going on.

Relax there, when legislators and cronies have unloaded all of their stock… then it will all come out.

As for main stream media investigating (ouch, my ribs!)… are living in the seventies man?

The main stream media is busy editing corporate and political promos and public relations pieces — changing copy from first person to third person — to fill the 24/7 wasteland they wrap around the commercial advertising that is fifth estate’s new “raison d’etre”.

It’s really sad that Johnson & Johnson used to be such a brand name and seen as a wholesome family company and now it seems as if they’re recalling everything they produce; even items that have been on the market for years are surfacing with problems.

Lucky enough, I came across a fantastic website that was extremely helpful and informative with great articles or recalled drugs and medicines. http://www.drugrecalls.com
