J&J settles drug manufacturing probe by US states for $33 mln

Kentucky to receive $500K in Johnson & Johnson settlement

The states alleged that Johnson & Johnson subsidiary McNeil-PPC committed consumer fraud by selling drugs that it falsely claimed were manufactured following federal practices. Moreover, some McNeil OTC drugs were deemed adulterated as a matter of federal law.

"It's important that companies like these play by the rules, especially when we trust our health to their products", says Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden".

"Hundreds of millions" pf packages of popular brands like Tylenol, Benadryl, Pepcid, and Rolaids produced at McNeil's Fort Washington, PA from 2009 to 2011 were recalled in response to reports of "product oddities" like strange odors and particles in some of the products, the Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General said in a press release heralding the settlement.

"Johnson & Johnson's disregard for proper manufacturing practices of children's medications was unacceptable", Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan said in a statement. "Drug companies that use deceptive practices threaten New Yorkers' health and wellbeing - and we won't hesitate to hold them accountable".

Advertise on its websites that McNeil's OTC drug product facilities meet cGMP if the drug has had a Class I or Class II recall within the previous 12 months. Under the terms of the settlement, McNeil will provide the involved Attorneys General with information on wholesalers and warehouses that received the recalled drugs.

The settlement does not require the states to use their share of the money in any particular way, except as permitted by state law at the discretion of the state attorney general.

This case was handled by Bureau of Consumer Frauds and Protection Chief Jane M. Azia, Deputy Bureau Chief Laura J. Levine and Assistant Attorney General Benjamin J. Lee, under the supervision of the Executive Deputy Attorney General for Economic Justice Manisha M. Sheth.
