Oregon Sues Johnson & Johnson over "Phantom Recall" of Children's Motrin

Johnson & Johnson is facing a lawsuit from the state of Oregon for issuing a "phantom recall" of Children's Motrin. A "phantom recall" is one in which the company doesn't tell consumers or authorities about the defective product, but instead hires fake shoppers to go to the stores where the good is being sold and buy it back.

It was more than a year before Johnson & Johnson issued an official recall of the good. The Children's Motrin was defective because it did not dissolve properly, rendering it ineffective.

The fake shoppers were directed to claim they were doing an audit if there were any questions about their purchases or their activities. They were sent to 29 stores throughout Oregon.
