The FDA is to hold a hearing tomorrow – May 27th – to examine the side effects of the drug Tylenol, which they had to issue a recall for. In the report that will be studied tomorrow, the Food and Drug Administration will look into the 30 deaths – although it is thought that they have no connection with the drug.
CNN Money explains that the FDA will also looks into the hundreds of side effects along with 7 deaths that have happened since May 1 – this was when McNeil, a division of Johnson & Johnson recalled its children’s version of Tylenol due to concerns with its safety.
The FDA is yet to comment on this matter, which is understandable in a serious case like this. We do not expect an outcome on May 27 – this is the fourth recall from McNeil in the past seven months, which is certainly worrying for those who have taken the drug.
These drugs include: Tylenol Arthritis Pain 100, Tylenol Arthritis Pain caplet, Tylenol, Motrin, along with the Childs version of the drug recently.
What do you think the outcome will be, or should be?
