I always felt bad when the trusted brands were put under scrutiny considering that J&J has been the most trusted name in baby products since 1886..
According to the Shenzhen Daily News this morning, there was this watchdog from the US stating that Johnson and Johnson's Baby products has found to have contained toxic elements. But the State quality watchdogs however denied an earlier report. There would be further investigation.. The investigation concerns mainly on the J&J's baby bath and baby shampoo products which allegedly containing cancer-causing chemicals 1,4-dioxane and formaldehyde.
J&J has been my family's trusted brand even before I was born. I grew up using the one and only "NO MORE TEARS SHAMPOO", and used the product when I had children of my own.. It was really sad that after strings of food safety scandals just few months ago, here comes the bad news again about this famous and trusted brand..
There are many families all over the world trusting this brand.. After over 123 years of manufacturing similar products, why mothers suddenly has to face this kind of distress?
