Despite assorted efforts to get its corporate house in order, Johnson & Johnson simply cannot escape manufacturing problems. The latest escapade has occurred in Brazil, where more than 3.3 million bottles of Tylenol Drops are being recalled because the dripper is apparently malfunctioning and can lead to an overdose. The active ingredient is acetaminophen, which can cause liver damage, and the J&J notice adds that an overdose can also result in nausea and other gastrointestinal problems. The bottles were made between December 2011 and November 2012, according to a notice issued by the health care giant. We asked J&J for comment and will update you accordingly.
