J&J Recalls K-Y Lubricants To Skirt FDA Review

Law360, New York (March 8, 2013, 7:13 PM EST) -- Johnson & Johnson has permanently pulled millions of units of its K-Y personal lubricants off store shelves in order to avoid submitting the products for a new review before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The pharmaceutical giant initiated the recall Jan. 25, though the first media report did not appear until Thursday. More than 2.3 million packages of three variations of the product —  K-Y Tingling Jelly, K-Y Sensitive Jelly and K-Y SILK-E Moisturizer and Personal Lubricants —  are included in the recall, though the company maintained that just more than 20,000 units were on store shelves.
