Johnson & Johnson

Johnson & Johnson is a name that most people associated with health and wellness.  But in addition to baby shampoo and Q-tips, Johnson & Johnson is a worldwide manufacturer of pharmaceuticals and medical devices.  Ethicon, one of Johnson & Johnson’s 250 subsidiaries, manufactures transvaginal mesh, a product that has put the health of thousands of women at risk.  In 2010 alone, almost 300,000 women received a transvaginal mesh implant, and thousands of these women have ended up with life-changing side effects such as mesh erosion, mesh perforation, infection, bleeding, pain during sexual intercourse, and scarring.

Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon subsidiary has already been the subject of litigation over its Gynecare mesh products.  The company stopped manufacturing several of these products, and faces almost 4,000 lawsuits over it.  In early 2013, a New Jersey jury handed down a verdict of $11.11 million against Ethicon.
