Oct 24 (Reuters) - Pharmacy retailer CVS Health Corp CVS.N said on Thursday it is pulling out 22 ounce bottles of Johnson & Johnson's JNJ.N baby powder from its stores as a precautionary measure.
J&J, which is facing thousands of lawsuits over a variety of products, said last week it was recalling around 33,000 bottles of baby powder in the United States after U.S. health regulators found trace amounts of asbestos in samples taken from a bottle purchased online.
J&J was not immediately available for comment.
