J&J recalls drug as glass fragments found in product bottles

Filed under:

It's no secret that modern manufacturing processes are rarely perfect, but in the latest episode that could possibly demonstrate this, pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson has issued a recall based on glass fragments found in some of its in bottles.

A unit of Johnson & Johnson stated yesterday that it would be recalling prescription medicine used to treat ringworm and other fungal infections based on reports that glass shards were found in the prescription bottles used for the product, Grifulvin V.

At this time, the Johnson & Johnson unit responsible for the product is issuing recall letters to wholesalers and pharmacies across the U.S. to ensure Grifulvin V is being taken off pharmacy shelves. Right now, the glass shards in bottles are reportedly the results of S&H damage outside of the manufacturing process.
