Chapter 22, Problem 5AMD2
6. Despite the above indications of a strong ethical culture within the company, a number of civil and criminal actions have been instituted against J&J. In November 2013, a massive $2.2 billion settlement was made to resolve claims resulting from the promotion of unapproved or off-label uses for three drugs and alleged kickbacks to physicians and a nursing home pharmacy distributor.
B. These drugs were produced and distributed by Jansen Pharmaceuticals, a J&J subsidiary. Discuss the potential implications of having the drugs labelled as produced and distributed by a business unit within J&J versus by Janssen, a subsidiary of J&J, versus Janssen with no mention of J&J.
