Drugs regulator has ordered Johnson & Johnson to stop manufacturing its baby powder using raw materials in two of its Indian factories until test results prove they are free of asbestos, a senior official said on Thursday.
Lok Sabha in its winter session on Wednesday passed a bill constraining commercial surrogacy and permitted close relatives to go for surrogacy on “philanthropist” grounds.
India’s drug regulator is going to conduct a test for the Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder for traces of asbestos.
As the FDA continued to investigate asbestos in talc, J&J sent powder samples to be tested at private and university labs.
Accused of selling defective products, Johnson & Johnson is willing to pay more than $400 million to settle some of the thousands of consumers’ allegations.
Dilip Shanghvi retorted the allegations of corruption.
