“We now see a strong likelihood of near-term FDA enforcement action.”

Once again Ed Silverman in his Pharmalot blog outlines the issues that have plagued the pharmaceutical industry giant over mandated recalls, “phantom recalls”, other regulatory misdeeds that have impacted their venerable brands including Tylenol, Mylanta, Motrin, Rolaids and Benadryl.
