The Phildelphia Inquirer reports that Tylenol is now facing a grand jury investigation into catalysts that spurred the recent recalls. Tylenol's company McNeil Consumer Healthcare is owned by Johnson and Johnson. They made the announcement of the investigation. Many of Tylenol's plants have been questionable, but the most recent, Fort Washington plant is the one under scrutiny at the moment.
According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, "Among the problems highlighted by inspectors were shortcomings in
training, improperly maintained equipment, lack of adequate controls
governing product quality and strength, and failure to follow up on
complaints." After this investigation, the plant was shut down and several products were recalled. The company has had six recalls since September.
Now the company is facing financial woes. McNeil plans to lose 300 employees before its plant reopens next year.
