Childrens Motrin recall

J&J Earnings Hurt by Children's Medicine Recalls

Tylenol and Band-Aid maker Johnson & Johnson announced on Tuesday that its sales declined 0.7% to $15 billion in the third quarter, compared to the same quarter last year, as domestic sales were "significantly impacted" by recent successive recalls. Domestic sales declined 2.5%.

Was Johnson & Johnson aware of problems with its Children's Tylenol months before the recall? The House Oversight Committee has invited an FDA commissioner and Johnson & Johnson chairman to a hearing next week to address this and other questions surrounding the massive recall of children's medicines earlier this year.
