In the fall of 1982, Johnson & Johnson faced the biggest public relations crisis in corporate history after seven people in Illinois died from taking Extra-Strength Tylenol.
Johnson & Johnson sprang into action, recalling 31 million bottles of the pain reliever nationwide at a cost of more than $100 million and launching a major PR campaign.
The FBI, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and law enforcement agencies realized that someone had methodically taken the Tylenol bottles off the shelves at the stores where they were sold, filled the capsules with cyanide and returned them back to the shelves at a later period. Within 3 months, police arrested James Lewis in connection with this crime.
