OTC drugs weren't the only products recalled by J&J in 2010; products from contact lenses to hip replacement products were also recalled.

TheStreet has compiled photos of major over-the-counter product recalls by J&J, creating a gallery that serves as a portrayal of J&J's yearlong market debacle last year -- and any other possible debacles in 2011. Read on for more ...
