Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) hires Bayer CropScience CEO Sandra Peterson to oversee J&J's recall-plagued consumer health and manufacturing operations. Peterson's recruitment is the first major executive hire by Alex Gorsky since he became J&J CEO in April as he looks to make good on a pledge to fix the company's quality, legal and ethical problems.

  • The recalls are getting ridiculous, every week something is getting recalled. Is anything of quality being made? Or are we just pickier and more strict now?

  • Pride-----------5 letters that fully described what the American worker was all about while I grew up. Pharma companies,Auto makers & well just take your pick.
    Anywhere in this world that you traveled, all the locals wanted was U.S. made products. Now our compitition comes from Asia, Europe & other countries that still show some pride in what they do. They don't look at the clock other than to see when to have lunch.
    I still remember a friend who was traveling, & after Gorbachev changed the world forever with Glas- nos he was in Leningrad & the locals offered him $100. for his very used $35.00 jeans. Not anymore ! Sadly
