Contaminated Tylenol Results in $25 Million Settlement
McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson has pleaded guilty in court to federal charges of selling contaminated over-the-counter medicines in 2010.
You might remember the recall that happened a few years ago, stating that over-the-counter Tylenol medications, including Infants’ Tylenol and Children’s Motrin were contaminated with metals. This recall resulted in McNeil Consumer Healthcare not only pleading guilty in the Federal District Court in Philadelphia last week, but they have also agreed to pay a $25 million settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice.
Heavy Metal Poisoning, such as children were susceptible to after taking doses of the contaminated Tylenol products, can result in severe disorders, autoimmune diseases, and chronic health issues.
