Johnson & Johnson is a renowned name in pharmaceuticals and baby products, but recent recalls may have consumers questioning the company’s reputation.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Johnson & Johnson is recalling defective medical devices, including syringes of the anti-psychotic drug Invega Susstenna because some of the syringes are cracked which could lead to infections or under-dosing of the medication.

This is the latest of a string of recalls of defective medical devices from Johnson & Johnson, including syringes of Tylenol, Benadryl, Sinutab, and Sudafed products that were manufactured during a time when equipment may have been dirty.

The company maintains that the risk of developing defective medical device injuries due to the recall is low, but there has been one report of defective medical device injury in Australia.
