FDA Probes Purell's Johnson & Johnson; Hundreds of Complaints

As reported throughout the news media, the U.S. House of Representatives will be holding special hearings investigating J&J's recall of more than 40 nonprescription products, and upwards of 1000 complaints about health problems in infants and children given J&J medications.

Johnson & Johnson is the retail market license holder for Purell alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Neither J&J or the FDA would provide comment as to the total of number of complaints filed, or whether the above-noted complaints related to the Purell product.
