The "Tylenol Bill"
Just turned on the shitbox... poop
20 most shocking 'unsolved' crimes, on E!

i saw "The Tylenol Murders"...1983, chicago, seems so unreal...this article i found seems biased/propoganda-ish too..
[link to eightiesclub.tripod.com]

red flags, anyone remember this? was this a real dude out there..or govnt fear mongering. peanut butter..too..what a "perfect" food to infect, think of how many people consume it.. none of those "infested" farms were organic farms...

"The next time you struggle impatiently with the tamper-proof seals on over-the-counter medicine, remember the Tylenol Scare that occurred in the autumn of 1982 after someone put potassium cyanide in Extra-Strength Tylenol capsules, killing seven people in the Chicago area."...

***apparently, some "MADMAN" had the resourses and time to get a bunch of pills and KCP and spent the time to do all this...

"In six short years Johnson & Johnson had made Tylenol a top seller through aggressive advertising, increasing its market share from a mere four percent to more than 35 percent, and selling an estimated $400 million worth of non-prescription painkiller a year. In the weeks and months following the murders, market analysts and stockbrokers speculated whether Johnson & Johnson could rehabilitate the Tylenol name, now associated in the minds of millions with instant death. Some experts suggested that the company should market the analgesic under a completely new name."

***OH THANK GOD, what would we do without TYLENOL?

"Police sought links between the Tylenol murders and other unsolved poisonings in Wyoming, Pennsylvania and California. In the latter case, small non-fatal doses of strychnine were found in several bottles of Tylenol capsules. Copycat crimes were the greatest fear of authorities. There were 270 cases of suspected product tampering in the months following the Chicago murders -- mercuric chloride in Excedrin Extra-Strength capsules, rat poison in Anacin, acid in Sinex nasal spray and Visine eye drops, sodium hydroxide in chocolate milk, razor blades in franks, and straight pins in candy bars. In years to come there would be other cases of product tampering that resulted in death: Excedrin and Tylenol in 1986, Sudafed in 1991, Goody's Headache Powder in 1992. Some wondered if the Tylenol killer was still at work."

***the killer is still out there!! HURRY PASS HR 875!!! ROSA DELAURO IS RITE!!!! rofl

"Congress, the Food and Drug Administration, and pharmaceutical manufacturers turned to the problem of packaging non-prescription drugs to thwart tampering and restore the public's shattered faith in the products. In May 1983, Congress approved the "Tylenol Bill," making malicious tampering with consumer products a federal offense."

YES!! Great idea, lovely mix, Congress/FDA/and "pharmaceutical manufacturers" making laws. Winning combo.

does anyone know this law? seems very relevant to HR 875.. pretty soon everything to do with food PROCESSING is going to be "malicious tampering".


... YOUR FOOD IS NOT SAFEEEE...drugs are not safe.....we must regulate youuuuuu! gdub

Re: The "Tylenol Bill"
Read the new book The Tylenol Mafia: Marketing, Murder and Johnson & Johnson by Scott Bartz.

Good stuff. Uncovers the evidence that the distribution channel is the location for the tampering-- not some madman running store-to-store. Total liability cover up.

I found this thread while doing some deep research into "The 1983 Tylenol Bill". I find it hilarious that this bill does nothing but protect the manufacturer over lost commerce-- not save a consumer from being poisoned by 10,000x the lethal amount of cyanide.

Product tampering, up until the 1982 Tylenol cyanide murders, was a misdemeanor. (which means the FBI had no jurisdiction over the Tylenol case). After the murders, and this handy Tylenol Bill, it became a federal offense to tamper with consumable products. Here's a line from the "law": A person commits an offense under the Act if he or she threatens to tamper with a consumer product that affects interstate or foreign commerce.

I feel so safe now!

In fact, when you look at this whole fraud case as a whole, you realize that if the poisoning happened in the distribution channel, safety seals are of no purpose (it actually makes your food more dangerous because there we naturally just assume all is safe after spending a few minutes ripping through tops and plastic). So, a corporation literally gets away with murder by releasing itself of liability by placing blame on a madman in the store-- then makes a new great law which has the public believing it is all about the safety seal, but really is all about halting commerce by the tamperer.

My husband always said, "Follow the money trail. Go down to the patent office and look up the first person to patent the safety seal. Whoever was the first to patent it, is the murderer."

My mom was a 27-year-old victim. She was a beautiful mother of 4. As a victim's daughter, they still won't give me any answers.
