Cancer-causing agents were not used as additives in Johnson & Johnson baby products, China's State Food and Drug Administration announced on its Web site.
The officials launched an investigation after a U.S. activist group said dozens of the products contained formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane, the Associated Press reported. The products were also declared safe by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.
Last week, the report by Campaign for Safe Cosmetics prompted Shanghai-based Nonggongshan Supermarkets Corp. to pull J&J's baby products from its 3,500 stores in China. The supermarket chain resumed sales of the products after they were cleared by government officials.
J&J denies the allegations by Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a coalition of nonprofit organizations. The company says all its products are in compliance with safety laws in the countries were they're sold, the AP reported.
