Johnson & Johnson scandal
Their managers want to convince the public that formaldehyde in their items is low and does not affect health.This was used in No more tears Shampoo for babies.

No doubt, timing is strange too especially since California has a new law for pharma items and cosmetics to have every item on the label.
This company is not the only one with bad ingredients in their products of course. There are groups that force companies to remove chemicals that are dangerous.
