FDA uncovers quality control problems at plant responsible for manufacturing recalled children’s medicines.

According to the CBS Evening News  – “We’re learning more tonight about last weekend’s recall of children’s medicine” manufactured by a unit of Johnson & Johnson, McNeil Consumer Healthcare.
The company voluntarily “recalled 43 over the counter medications, including Tylenol [acetaminophen] and Motrin [ibuprofen] for children and infants.” Now, according to a recently released federal report, “inspectors found more than 20 manufacturing problems at a Pennsylvania plant, which has been shut down.”
The report, which the FDA “sent to McNeil last Friday, before the recall, said the company had used raw materials with known bacterial contamination to make certain lots of infants’ and children’s liquid Tylenol,” the New York Times.
“Samples of finished products tested negative for bacteria, however, and the risk to consumers was remote, agency officials said.”
