phantom recall of motrin

Back in June there was known issues of a very popular pain killer Motrin. Instead of let the public know about it, the company Johnson and Johnson did a secret recall and failed to alert the public. They sent out people to buy all of the pills off the shelf. What about those people that probably already bought them? They don't deserve to know that the pain killer that is suppose to help has a problem?

  • The recall was advertised along with the children's tylenol, motrin, and zyrtec recall.

  • They followed the same procedures as everyone else.

    Just because you didn't hear about it doesn't mean there was a cover-up.

  • Read the link Upsherises it WAS a cover up. That's why it's called a PHANTOM recall. No one knew at the time
