A lawsuit has been filed in Philadelphia against Johnson & Johnson Inc. alleging Very Berry Strawberry Children’s Tylenol was linked to the death of a two-year-oldboy. In the lawsuit filed in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court, the parents, Daniel and Katy Moore, allege their son received a larger dose than normal of acetaminophen causing liver damage and his ultimate death. The suit names Tylenol’s manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson, and its McNeil Consumer Healthcare subsidiary as Defendants.
When McNeil Consumer Healthcare initiated several recalls for children’s products in 2010, it communicated that information to the Food and Drug Administration, consumers, retailers and healthcare professionals. There were various reasons for those recalls, but they were not related to serious adverse events, as alleged in this suit. McNeil announced a recall April 30, 2010, of more than 136 million bottles of liquid infants’ and children’s products, due to metal particles, incorrect doses and musty-smelling pills among other issues. A Congressional hearing on the subject was held in May 2010. Joseph Messa, a Philadelphia lawyer, represents the parents in the lawsuit.
