Tylenol Recall


Event: '"Johnson & Johnson's Recall Of Children's Tylenol And Other Children's Medicines"'   Date: Thursday, May 27, 2010 At 10:00 AM

On Thursday, May 27, 2010, The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will hold a hearing to examine the recall of popular pediatric medicines recalled by Johnson & Johnson subsidiary McNeil Pharmaceuticals. The hearing entitled "Johnson & Johnson's Recall of Children's Tylenol and Other Medicines" will take place at 10:00 a.m. in room 2154 Rayburn House Office Building.

Tylenol Motrin Recall

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which earlier this month announced an investigation into the recall, has invited officials of Johnson & Johnson and the F.D.A. to testify at the hearing.

The House committee is trying to determine the chronology and the cause of the manufacturing issues at Johnson & Johnson and whether federal regulators responded adequately.

“We feel that it’s so important, when you have an agency that has jurisdiction, that they are on top of situations like this,” Representative Edolphus Towns, Democrat of New York and the chairman of the committee, said Tuesday. “Were they aware of what was going on and at what point did they know?”

The witnesses scheduled to testify include:

Panel I

Dr. Joshua Sharfstein
Principal Deputy Commissioner
Food and Drug Administration

Ms. Deborah M. Autor
Director of the Office of Compliance
Center for Drug Evaluation  and Research
Food and Drug Administration

Mr. Michael A. Chappell
