Federal officials say that the sole plant that manufactures children’s and infants’ Tylenol, Motrin and other popular over-the-counter pediatric medicines lacked quality controls, used raw materials contaminated with bacteria, and failed to investigate consumer complaints that some medicines contained black particles. “The findings are serious,” according to Deborah M. Autor, a senior official at the FDA, which documented 20 problems at the Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, plant owned by McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a division of Johnson & Johnson. The FDA is weighing whether to take action against McNeil, pending the completion of its investigation. More will be said on this matter in the Recalls Section.
