NEW YORK — Johnson & Johnson had temporarily stopped distribution of its products to Amazon.com over concerns that Amazon hasn't done enough to prevent third-party resellers from selling damaged or expired J&J products on Amazon's site, according to a report published Sunday by The Wall Street Journal.
Citing people familiar with the matter, the WSJ reported that J&J had stopped shipping products including Tylenol, Band-Aids and Johnson's baby products. However, J&J has resumed shipping those products to Amazon.com in recent days.
In its annual report, Amazon.com warns that it may be unable to prevent resellers from selling damaged or expired product. But Amazon.com still guarantees those purchases and will reimburse buyers of damaged or defective items up to $2,500.
