The U.S. FDA has fingered a third Johnson & Johnson manufacturing facility for gross, systemic manufacturing violations. This time, the FDA issued its indictment against the San German, Puerto Facility which manufactured J&J’s Cordis stents. The facility had repeated abuses and the company did not address the FDA’s corrective action plan.
The San German, Puerto Rico facility joins J&J facilities at Fort Washington, Pennsylvania and Las Piedras, Puerto Rico. This latest revelation adds new insights into the far reaching and systemic manufacturing deficiencies across the entire network of J&J’s companies.
