Criminal Charges Are Possible For Tylenol Recall Scandal

CNN is reporting that the FDA has referred the Tylenol recall case to their criminal division for investigation. At issue is a pattern of non-compliance with FDA warnings and failures by management of McNeil to investigate and provide a timely resolution to serious problems with the product. These problems include excess amounts of the active ingredient in Tylenol, acetaminophen.

    i agree. The amount of recalls they've had lately are ridiculous. I was also listening to the news today and they knew about problems with their products for almost 2 years. In fact they sent people to stores to buy back some of their bad products and told the retailers not to tell people about a recall according to my local news channel.

      That's ridiculous. I always use generics for my kids medicines at least. It just scares me because I know sometimes generics are manufactured in the same place as the name brands. I haven't heard of any of the store brands recalled though thank goodness.
