Johnson & Johnson, maker of Children’s Tylenol and Motrin, has pleaded guilty to charges it sold contaminated products to consumers.
As reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer, the company has agreed to pay a massive fine – $25 million – after pleading guilty to a single criminal count in federal court over poor manufacturing practices at its Fort Washington facility.
The paper said the company’s plea relates to the discovery of metal particles including nickel and chromium that were discovered in children’s liquid medicine manufactured at the McNeil Consumer Healthcare Plant between May 2009 and April 2010. Court documents said the fine was set as a percentage of sales of the tainted products during the 11 months included in the filing and plea.
