  2. David, Thanks for this story. I teach business ethics and have traditionally used J&J as a poster-child for good business ethics because of how it handled the Tylenol poisoning incident in Chicago back in the 1980s. The company claimed to have a “Credo” that set the tone for an ethical organization culture. Apparently, a lot has changed over the years and the top management and board of directors should be ashamed of themselves assuming the claims in the shareholder lawsuit are valid.
