Tylenol Maker Admits to Selling Liquid Medicine Contaminated with Metal
Because the hydra of big pharma, oil, agriculture, chemical and war care about human health?
"The maker of Tylenol pleaded guilty in a Federal Court on Tuesday to selling liquid medicine contaminated with metal.
Metal particles, including nickel, iron and chromium, were introduced during the manufacturing process at McNeil’s plant in Fort Washington. Prosecutors said McNeil knew about the problem for nearly a year but failed to take immediate steps to fix it.
So, despite knowing about the contamination of with toxic metals- Johnson & Johnson kept right on selling their contaminated children’s tylenol
The metal contamination is just the latest of many problems in the making of this product
Notice this never gets main stream media coverage on the scale that it should?
“McNeil is a unit of Johnson & Johnson. The New Brunswick, New Jersey, health care giant has struggled with scores of product recalls since 2009. In late 2009, the company recalled Tylenol, Motrin, and Benadryl after consumers reported a moldy odor coming from newly opened bottles and complaints of stomach pains and diarrhea were filed.
In this case, McNeil first learned of the particle problem in May 2009, when a consumer complained about black specks inside a bottle of Infants’ Tylenol, according to court documents. McNeil subsequently found metal particles during production but continued making the liquid medicines for several more months”Absolutely disgusting!!!
