Couple Sues J&J Over Death of 2-year-old Son

January 12th, 2012

Last week, the Washington Post reported the story of a Washington state couple suing Tylenol manufacturers, Johnson & Johnson. According to the Post, Daniel and Katy Moore claim that their 2-year-old son River Moore died as a result of consuming a Children’s Tylenol product. The specific package in question had been recalled due to high levels of the active ingredient acetaminophen. Shortly after taking the over-the-counter medication for a slight fever, the young boy died of liver failure, a known effect of an acetaminophen overdose. “The lawsuit, filed…in Philadelphia’s Court of Common Pleas, accuses Johnson & Johnson of recklessness, negligence, breach of warranty, infliction of emotional distress, conspiracy and other offenses,” the story explains.

The article also notes that Johnson & Johnson’s 2009 recall of the product at the center of this lawsuit is “part of the company’s continuing string of recalls of drugs and medical devices.” In fact, the drug injury practice of Seeger Weiss LLP is currently investigating complaints of liver damage at the hands of Tylenol.
