Drug companies, others sued over allegedly ineffective decongestant
Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. is among the companies sued last week over a decongestant that’s alleged to be ineffective.
Florida resident Steve Audelo filed his complaint September 13 in the Northern District of Florida federal court accusing Procter & Gamble and Johnson & Johnson Consumer of fraud and deception.
“These products are manufactured, sold and distributed by defendants and have been found by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to lack efficacy,” wrote Audelo’s attorney Jason Richards of the Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz law firm. “The products’ lack of efficacy was not disclosed to plaintiff prior to plaintiff’s purchase of the products and plaintiff would not have purchased the products had he known they did not work as advertised.”
