Johnson & Johnson Hit With Fraud And Racketeering Lawsuits Over Tylenol Recalls

The only thing more certain than stinky Tylenol this year is that there would be a lawsuit from consumers at some point, and now it’s happened. Five times, in fact. They’ve been filed against Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit and seek class action status, and accuse J&J/McNeil of failing to properly recall the bad drugs and of failing to adequately compensate consumers.

One of the complaints made in the lawsuits is that instead of refunds, J&J issued coupons to consumers–for products that are currently not for sale due to the recall.
