MUMBAI, September 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The Bombay High Court today allowed baby products manufacturer Johnson &
Johnson to restart the manufacturing of baby powder at its Mulund unit, which
had been stopped upon the order of Maharashtra Food and Drug Administration.

The Honourable High Court passed this judgment after due consideration of all
facts related to the case. The court also found the company's offer to test
the batches of baby powder in question, reasonable. Further, there was no
scientific foundation that there were any carcinogens present in that batch of
baby powder.

"Nothing is more important to us than the well-being of consumers, and we see
this outcome as a significant step in restoring their confidence. We will
continue to work closely with Maharashtra FDA, and provide India with safe,
high quality products that help people care for themselves and their
families," said a Johnson & Johnson, India spokesperson.

For the past 100 years, Johnson & Johnson has earned the trust of over one
billion families and healthcare professionals. Our commitment to safety and
health of our consumers has and will always be, our top priority.
