Parents Allege Tainted Tylenol Killed Infant

Filed April 18th, 2012 Laurie

A popular pain-killer and fever reducer is being blamed for the death of an infant. Malgorzata and Michael Cherry say they gave their two-month-old son Markus the grape-flavored drops in 2010. Three days later, little Markus passed away and testing revealed the presence of harmful bacteria in the Tylenol. The couple is now suing the maker of Tylenol, Johnson & Johnson.

Johnson & Johnson recalled the Tylenol Infant Drops, along with 40 other types of children’s and infants’ medications, 13 days after Markus’ death.

Upon investigation, the Food and Drug Administration found manufacturing and contamination problems the McNeil Consumer Healthcare plant in Fort Washington, Pa., where the medication was made. Quality-control problems had been found at the plant in the past.

The plant was shut down after the recall and it will remain that way through 2013.

The Cherry family alleges Johnson & Johnson failed to adequately respond to previous warnings from drug safety officials and failed to give consumers enough warning about the products. The seven-count suit claims negligent manufacturing, liability for defects and failure to warn consumers, misrepresentation and consumer fraud. They are seeking at least $350,000 in damages.
