The company said it was forced to file for bankruptcy due to financial problems and product recalls affecting the company's Holly Hill facility.
The company blames a recall issued last month on more than 200 contaminated products, that included a nasal spray and baby oral gel.
After the recall, 300 people found themselves out of work.
Some of the former employees said they've been left in the dark about what's next.
“To be treated like this by the people in charge, it's very upsetting,” said former employee Tom Panicello.
In the bankruptcy notice filed at a North Carolina federal courthouse, the company blames, “Ineffective senior leadership, employee turnover, extensive product quality issues and the subsequent recall of many products.”
At the holly hill facility, the paperwork says there were, “Widespread quality control issues and contamination.”
The report said the facility has had issues for years.
Channel 9’s Mike Springer went to the facility, but no one would answer the door or return his calls.
Employees said they're unsure how much longer they'll continue to get paid.
“Everybody is caught in a wind mill (about) whether or not we are going to get paid the full 60 days,” said Panicello.
The next court date is set for Thursday morning in North Carolina.
