FDA posts press releases and other notices from firms as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties. 

The Johnson & Johnson Group of Consumer Companies is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Office of Criminal Investigations (FDA), and other law enforcement officials to recover cases of select lots of retail non-prescription consumer healthcare products. The products were stolen from a Less than container (LCL) load which was picked up from Fontana, CA on Wednesday, October 13th and brought to the carrier’s yard in California where the freight would be consolidated with other shippers’ freight for ocean shipment to Hawaii. The container was stolen early morning on October 14th, and include small quantities of consumer health products from the following brands: BENADRYL®, CAREFREE®, JOHNSON’S® BABY, LISTERINE®, NEUTROGENA®, STAYFREE®, ZONAS™ POROUS TAPE.

The Johnson & Johnson Group of Consumer Companies, along with FDA and local authorities, has initiated efforts to locate the stolen product and identify the individuals who were involved in the theft.
