Lawmakers also will question J&J executive Colleen Goggins, who oversaw the consumer division of the company’s McNeil Healthcare unit during the recalls.

At the May hearing, Goggins told lawmakers she had no knowledge of instructions to contractors involved in the phantom recall to not tell store employees what they were doing. In her testimony Thursday, Goggins acknowledged that the company wrote those instructions.

“Based on what I have learned since May, I believe that McNeil should have handled things differently,” Goggins said.

Goggins will retire in March, Johnson & Johnson announced this month.
