J&J recalls, stops selling 3 versions of K-Y Jelly

542 days ago

By The Associated Press

(AP:NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.) Johnson & Johnson has quietly recalled some of its popular personal lubricants in order to avert potentially expensive new regulatory reviews.

The health products giant's McNeil unit removed three types of K-Y Jelly from pharmacy and grocery store shelves, and recalled packages from wholesalers, at the end of January. The recalled brands are K-Y Tingling Jelly, K-Y Sensitive Jelly and K-Y Silk-E Vaginal Moisturizer and Personal Lubricant.

McNeil says all three are safe and there are no "product performance issues," so consumers can keep using any they have left.

But McNeil doesn't plan to return them to the market after the company determined that each might require a detailed review by regulators. McNeil had considered them similar enough to existing products to not require such a review.
