As a personal injury lawyer I am all for keeping consumers safe from defective products but sometimes things get a little ridiculous. My case in point, Johnson & Johnson is recalling certain packages of Sudafed because of a typo. It’s not even a typo that accidentally tells people it’s ok to take 50 pills at once. Instead there is a double negative that reads “do not not divide, crush, chew or dissolve the tablet.”
The odd recall involves Sudafed’s extended-release 24 Hour tablets. The product is fine – consumers can still use it – but the problem is a misprint on the product’s box. The other funny thing is the internal packaging has the proper instructions but Johnson & Johnson and the Food and Drug Administration were concerned enough about the typo to recall 600,000 packages. That’s right 600,000 packages were recalled because of “not not”.
If you have been injured do to double negatives in the instructions on a product call a San Bernardino personal injury lawyer right away. It could be a matter of life or death! Of course I am kidding but hopefully you get the point.
