Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)'s Ethicon, Inc. (JNJ) Recalls Multiple Batches Of Sutures Over Possible Contamination in the UK


3/3/2011 6:33:25 AM

Wall Street Journal -- Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) has recalled multiple batches of surgical sutures because a packaging defect may have rendered them non-sterile, which could lead to infections if used in patients.

The recalls have hurt J&J sales and tarnished its reputation for quality.
