What Do We Know About Tylenol MDL?
The Judicial Panel of Multidistrict litigation issued a Transfer Order on October 5, 2022, consolidating the Tylenol cases in the Southern District of New York for pre-trial and discovery purposes as part of a Multidistrict Litigation (MDL). This action involves a number of groups of plaintiffs’ counsel, as well as competing defendants, including:
- Johnson & Johnson
- Family Dollar
- Rite Aid
- Sam’s Warehouse
What Do We Know About the Science and Injuries?
The science is continuing to develop. Among a number of international studies, there was also a 2018 study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology that studied over 130,000 pairs of mothers and children. It found a 20% higher associated risk of autism and 30% higher associated risk of ADHD for children who had prolonged exposure to acetaminophen in the womb.
Hospitals and Medical Providers Were Also Misled
Doctors, midwives, and other healthcare providers in obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) are not part of these claims. Medical providers were not properly warned about the increased risk of autism and ADHD by the companies that manufacture, market, and sell Tylenol and acetaminophen.
