Johnson and Johnson Recalls Motrin

There is a recall of a frequently used pain killer. The Johnson and Johnson Company has recalled medicinal drugs at least six times in the past two years.  During that period Belize has been affected by three of those tainted shipments. The third announcement came as recently as Wednesday when the company revealed that it is pulling batches of Motrin IB coated caplets from stores in Belize, United States, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Fiji, St. Lucia and Jamaica. According to Johnson and Johnson, the recall has become necessary because (quote) “testing of product samples showed that some caplets may not dissolve as quickly as intended when nearing their expiration date.” (unquote) In a statement from the company’s Consumer Healthcare Division, Johnson and Johnson says that consumers do need to dispose of or return the product since there are no safety concerns. But consumers taking Motrin may notice a delay in relief.
