Johnson & Johnson fined 25 mln euros by French competition watchdog

PARIS, Dec 20 (Reuters) - France’s competition authority said on Wednesday it had fined U.S. healthcare group Johnson & Johnson 25 million euros ($29.62 million) relating to a case involving the pain killer product durogesic.

Durogesic is sold as a skin patch to control on-going moderate to severe pain. Because it contains opioid fentanyl, misusage can lead to death by overdose.

Officials at Johnson & Johnson could not be immediately reached for comment.
