Johnson & Johnson on Trial for Defective Products

By Brian Chase on February 8, 2011 - 1 comment

It looks as if Johnson & Johnson’s defective hip replacement product isn’t the only thing they’ve swept under the rug lately. According to an article by, Oregon is seeking hundreds of thousands of dollars from Johnson & Johnson and two of its subsidiaries over defective Motrin caplets that were surreptitiously swept off shelves in a secret recall. The lawsuit alleges that when Johnson & Johnson found out that their Motrin caplets weren’t dissolving or working effectively they proceeded to hire a contractor to buy all the defective Motrin from all the stores who were carrying it.

This sneaky, and potentially harmful maneuver is concerning to say the least. Having been publicly chastised for their reluctance to recall their defective ASR units, consumers where hoping for a positive development to restore Johnson & Johnson’s depleted customer credibility, but are instead left with more disturbing food for thought. Has Johnson & Johnson placed their profit margin over the safety of their consumers?

Insider Information

This particular products liability case was made possible by a member of the secret recall who came forward to expose the operation. In June 2009, this WIS International employee alerted the Board of Pharmacy that Johnson & Johnson had hired his company to buy the defective Motrin, according to Tony Green Kroger’s spokesman. Officials alerted the Food and Drug Administration, and a few months later a full recall was announced.
