Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ): Closing price $87.16
J&J’s McNeil division said Friday that Johnson & Johnson is recalling 200,000 bottles of Motrin Infants formula because of the possibility that they contain tiny plastic particles. McNeil said that the recall affects three lots of its popular Motrin Drops Original Berry Flavor, which is for lowering fever and treating aches and pains in children 2 years old and below. The company warned that the medicine might be contaminated with specks of PTFE, a plastic also employed in Teflon coatings, and that it is not clear if the recalled bottles actually contain the particles, which were discovered in a different product during the manufacturing process.
