May 8, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in a recent report, divulged that the raw substances utilized in manufacturing children’s liquid cold medications, which were recalled recently, were contaminated with bacteria.

Deborah M. Autor, the director of the FDA’s Office of Compliance, mentioned that, in February, the agency had a meeting with the executives of McNeil Healthcare and its corporate parent Johnson & Johnson to protest about the company’s manufacturing processes. FDA commenced scrutiny in the middle of April and unearthed plentiful inadequacies in the manner in which the products were created and manufacturing process was controlled.

They discovered thick dust and grime wrapping the medicinal products and other health perils at the Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, facility of Johnson and Johnson.

The company has shut down its plant in Fort Washington, where these products were constructed. The plant can’t be regenerated without FDA sanction.

Drug giant, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, only just recalled more than forty products, including Tylenol, which is normally included in the catalog of products, which alleviate pain, allergies, and cold- and flu-related signs.

The Tylenol recall 2010 commenced this January after a grievance that stated an unpleasant smell in the product supposed to be due to contamination with the packaging.
