Had Enough Tylenol Recalls Yet? Here’s One More Voluntary Recall

What’s fun too is if the retailer doesn’t have it on the list to get your money back, be prepared for some possible delays. The good news is that Guam can kill some more Brown Tree Snakes, maybe? <grin>. I think this all started back in 2009 and the list just keeps going. BD
Bar codes please…I think by now everyone’s cupboards should be cleaned out of all Tylenol with recalls, that is if you can determine your lot has been recalled. Maybe Teva and Proctor and Gamble will do a better job with this. BD
FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., is recalling one product lot of TYLENOL® 8 Hour Extended Release Caplets 150 count bottles distributed in the United States. McNeil is taking this action as part of our ongoing surveillance and monitoring efforts that identified a small number of complaints of a musty or moldy odor. The uncharacteristic odor is thought to be caused by the presence of trace amounts of chemicals called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA) and 2,4,6-trichloroanisole (TCA). This voluntary action is being taken as a precaution and the risk of adverse medical events is remote. The product was manufactured at the McNeil Consumer Healthcare plant in Fort Washington, PA prior to the company's voluntary closure of the facility in April 2010.
The lot number for the recalled product can be found on the side of the bottle label.
