The Johnson & Johnson Tylenol Controversies
ICMR HOME | Case Studies Collection
Business Ethics Case Studies
Though the company received bad publicity and had to spend millions of dollars in legal settlements, J&J was reluctant to have more explicit warnings on Tylenol's labels. This was in contrast to the company's response in the previous product tampering crises. However, in 1997, following the the FDA labeling rules, J&J made many changes in Tylenol's labels.
