For those keeping track of the relationships between the pharmaceutical industry and former FDA staffers, Johnson & Johnson has just added Mark McClellan, who served as FDA commissioner from 2002 to 2004 and then headed the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services from 2004 to 2006, to its board of directors.
Johnson & Johnson has negatively been in the news for over a year: Cancer causing agents in baby products, ordered to pay violation fines in the Billions for ILLEGAL MARKETING, ordered to pay back shareholds for unethical behavior, products pulled for fast tracking around the FDA....AND NOW...they hire a former commissioner from the FDA to their Board?
Oodles of product recalls and shortages over the past three years – from Tylenol, Motrin and K-Y Jelly to birth control pills, contact lenses and syringes (see here
). And this has not hurt their revenue, only patients. http://www.buycott.com/campaign/608/johnson-johnson-revenue-17-9-billion-but-harms-patients
The FDA was designed to protect the public from fraud and now a former FDA COMMISSIONER is being PAID by Johnson & Johnson to sit on their BOARD. Isn't this a CONFLICT OF INTEREST?
BOYCOTT all Johnson & Johnson products until they become an ethical company and REMOVE Mark McClellan from their Board. http://www.pharmalive.com/mcclellan-to-the-rescue-jj-adds-former-fda-commish-on-board
