Don't buy J&J baby shampoo until 2014


TRENTON, N.J. — Johnson & Johnson plans to remove potentially cancer-causing and other dangerous chemicals from nearly all its adult toiletries and cosmetic products worldwide within 3 1 / 2years.

The health care giant late last year pledged to remove “chemicals of concern” from its baby products sold around the world after being pressed to do so for more than three years by a large coalition of health and environmental groups.

The company said Tuesday that it remains on track to have baby products, including its Johnson’s No More Tears baby shampoo, reformulated with safer ingredients by the end of 2013. Adult products will be reformulated by the end of 2015.
