Amazon.com is clashing with drug giant Johnson & Johnson amid complaints the online retailer has failed to stop people from selling damaged or expired J&J products on its website, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.

According to the publication, Amazon's "third party" resales are at the center of a dispute between the two corporate behemoths. These online shop owners sell many types of products which aren't affiliated with Amazon yet are an important part of the company's business.

Amid displeasure over what it perceives as Amazon's sluggish response, J&J stopped selling key products on the Internet giant's website, including Tylenol, Band-Aids and baby products, the WSJ reported, citing unnamed sources.
