One condoms arrive at Target
BOSTON A new condom brand has hit store shelves at Targets nationwide.
One condoms offer unmatched sensitivity without compromising strength, the company said. More than 1,700 Target stores now carry three styles of One premium condoms: Super Sensitive, Mixed Pleasures and Zero, a new product made from more natural, ultra-purified latex and is 25% thinner than standard condoms.
“For years, our customers have been asking when their favorite One condoms would be available at Target,” said Davin Wedel, CEO of One. “We are thrilled that day has finally come.”
To celebrate this milestone and thank its loyal customers, One is giving away free music to 1,000,000 fans. The free music downloads are available while supplies last by becoming a member of the One community in any of several ways:

HDI, Nipro Diabetes Systems to merge
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Home Diagnostics and Nipro Diabetes Systems earlier this week announced that the two companies will merge to become Nipro Diagnostics. Both companies are wholly owned by Nipro Corp., which is headquartered in Osaka, Japan.
“Our mission at Home Diagnostics has always been to make high-performance blood glucose monitoring technology more affordable to people with diabetes,” stated Joseph Capper, president of HDI. “Merging with Nipro Diabetes Systems helps us extend this mission to the insulin pump category.”
The name change to Nipro Diagnostics is effective immediately for Home Diagnostics. The merger of the two companies is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
Rep. Ed Towns: J&J uncooperative in federal probe
NEW YORK Johnson & Johnson has been less than cooperative with a congressional probe into the recent product recalls of J&J’s McNeil Consumer Healthcare division and the subsequent shuttering of its Fort Washington, Pa., manufacturing facility, the New York Times reported Thursday.
In an interview with the Times, Rep. Ed Towns, D-N.Y., suggested J&J has been less cooperative in responding to requests than were either Bank of America or the insurance giant A.I.G. when they recently were under investigation.
Towns and the committee may have to resort to subpoenas to compel J&J’s cooperation, Towns said.
Bonnie Jacobs, McNeil spokeswoman, countered that the company has already produced approximately 20,000 pages of documents, and that corporate executives were made available for interviews in a timely fashion, the Times reported.
