FORT WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) - Johnson & Johnson said Thursday it
will probably not have supplies for some 40 varieties of
medications recalled earlier this year until at least 2011, after
closing a key manufacturing site.
In late April, J&J's McNeil unit recalled a variety of
children's and adult over-the-counter medicines due to numerous
manufacturing problems at its Fort Washington plant.
The company says in a statement it has not decided when to
resume operations at the plant, which was shut down in May.
Products made at the plant generated about $650 million in
annual sales in recent years. J&J, based in New Brunswick, N.J.,
reported total sales of $61.9 billion last year.
