The Johnson & Johnson company, manufacturer of Tylenol and many other similar medications, has come under pressure recently due to quality control problems at one of their plants. The drug maker voluntarily recalled certain lots of children’s liquid Tylenol and Motrin this month.

The plant under scrutiny is in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, and had been inspected by the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA said Johnson & Johnson failed to adequately investigate and correct various deficiencies in its manufacturing and drugs. The FDA report cited the use of raw materials with known bacterial contamination to make infants’ and children’s liquid Tylenol. Samples of finished products tested negative for bacteria, however, and the risk to consumers was remote, agency officials said.
