FDA Suspends Johnson & Johnson License

Johnson & Johnson

I was a little shocked to read this as I’m sure that many of you will be as well. The FDA is suspending Johnson & Johnson’s license for business as of June 24th. Johnson & Johnson is the multinational Consumer and healthcare major to manufacture cosmetic products at their Mulund plant.

It seems that in 2007 there were 15 batches of of Johnson & Johnson baby powder. And later it was found out that the residue was found because that the talcum powder was sterilised by ethylene oxide which in is carcinogenic and irritant. As per a report in Newindianexpress, Kamlesh B Shende, FDA joint commissioner (drugs), said: ‚ÄúThere were unacceptable levels of ethylene oxide, which is a trigger for cancer. This information was written in an article by Niticentral. I’m curious what your thoughts are on this suspended license or about Johnson & Johnson.
