Johnson & Johnson: Is This Whole “Recall” Unimportant To Them?

Johnson & Johnson was supposed to provide a slew of documents to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform by 4:00 p.m. on Monday. The Committee reported that J&J missed their deadline, J&J told reporters that they provided the documents. Are they relying on the mail rule (you get an extra 3 days to send stuff to Congress if you send by USPS)? Maybe they should be using e-mail. Or couriers. Or anything to make sure Congress gets these documents by the time they want them.

It just looks bad, even if it is a miscommunication. As a consumer, it somewhat substantiates the allegations regarding J&J’s manufacturing process. If they can’t get documents sent over in time, can they really make complicated medication in a sanitary way?
