FDA Admits Delayed Response to Secret Recall

Ad Feedback

Officials for the Food and Drug Administration have admitted Thursday that they should have acted sooner to stop a secret drug recall by Johnson & Johnson.

Last year, the drug company secretly bought up defective packets of the painkiller Motrin from stores across the country. Johnson & Johnson informed the FDA about the undercover purchasing, but the government waited almost three months before ordering a recall.

During testimony on Capitol Hill Thursday, FDA officials admitted they should have acted sooner. This recall is part of a boarder investigation into the recalls of Children's Tylenol and other pediatric drugs.
