A former staff member of Johnson & Johnson (J&J) has moved the Bombay high court claiming that he was the whistle-blower who revealed that the company had sent 1.61 lakh baby powder boxes into the market without checking for ethyl oxide residue. A division bench of Justice S J Vazifdar and Justice K R Shriram on Thursday heard a plea by Ajit Telang to intervene in a petition filed by J&J challenging the FDA's order directing closure of its Mulund facility. FDA had claimed that J&J had applied carcinogenic EtO to 15 batches of baby powder in 2007, and did not check for residue.
