Latest Johnson & Johnson Recall: 12 Million Bottles of Motrin

Following a year of recalls, Johnson & Johnson has implemented yet another. This time, Johnson & Johnson is recalling a massive 12 million bottles of Motrin. It seems the defective Motrin dissolves too slowly.

Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit wrote in a statement on its website that product testing indicated that some Motrin caplets might not dissolve as soon as they are supposed to when the mediation nears its expiration date, said Bloomberg Businessweek. Customers do not have to return the painkillers; however, there may be what McNeil described as “a delay in relief” after taking Motrin, spokeswoman Bonnie Jacobs told Businessweek.

Earlier this year, McNeil agreed to allow U.S. regulators increased oversight at three of its manufacturing plants, following a McNeil recall of tens of millions of packages of over-the-counter (OTC) medications over quality issues, said Businessweek. This recall involved Motrin distributed in the United States, Puerto Rico, Fiji, Belize, the Bahamas, St. Lucia, and Jamaica, said McNeil.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we are recalling all the listed products since there is a chance they could experience a similar problem as they approach expiration,” McNeil said, wrote Businessweek.

The recall involves lots of Motrin IB 24-count coated caplets, Motrin IB 24-count coated tablets, and Motrin IB 24+6 count coated caplets. According to Jacobs, it does not appear as if other Motrin products are involved and the cause of this problem is being investigated, wrote Businessweek.

NewsInferno recently wrote that drug giant Johnson & Johnson has recalled at least 22 products this year, costing—at last count—over $900 million in sales. The unprecedented series of recalls included at least 20 by McNeil involving hundreds of millions of bottles of adult and children’s formulations of Tylenol, Motrin, and other OTC medications.

Other recalls involved Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals’ division of its pre-filled Invega Sustenna syringe, Ethicon division’s surgical drainage products, two of DePuy Orthopaedics unit’s hip replacement implants, Animas unit’s insulin pump cartridges, 1-Day Acuvue TruEye contact lenses, and Simponi injection pens, to name just some, said NewsInferno.
