华盛顿特区。 (2019年12月5日) - 今天,代表。拉加·克里希纳穆尔,对经济和消费政策小组委员会主席,送 to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) pressing them to expeditiously release the results of additional tests it conducted after initially finding asbestos in Johnson & Johnson’s talc-based baby powder.

“I am troubled by allegations that Johnson & Johnson has been questioning the integrity of the finding by the Food and Drug Administration that samples of its baby powder contain asbestos,” Chairman Krishnamoorthi said. “Johnson & Johnson’s allegations appear to be without scientific merit.”

在2019年10月18日,FDA 公布 that a contracted laboratory detected asbestos in one lot of Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder.  On December 3, 2019, Johnson & Johnson issued a statement which cast doubt on the integrity of the contract laboratory, AMA Analytical Services Inc. Johnson & Johnson 声称 that the investigation “revealed that the testing protocol at AMA deviated from standard practice and that AMA did not execute a full asbestos confirmation as required by their lab’s test method.”  Johnson & Johnson also alleged that “the most probable root causes for the FDA’s reported results were either test sample contamination and/or analyst error at the AMA lab.”

与小组委员会的工作人员介绍情况时,FDA披露他们委托进行第二次测试,这是由职业安全与健康管理局(OSHA)进行。 FDA还指出,它目前拥有OSHA的测试结果。 

“FDA的流程的完整性的方式有损信任的美国人已经公开挑战在政府机构。当FDA警告消费者对产品的危害,重要的是,美国人相信,美国FDA的调查结果真正优先考虑公众健康,” krishnamoorthi写道。 “这是极为重要的你的机构的信誉释放AMA的原创性成果的OSHA的确认测试的结果。”

董事长krishnamoorthi将举行 听力 next week to continue examining consumer concerns regarding the safety of personal care products that contain talc, including Johnson & Johnson’s talc-based baby powder.
