Thanks to the now-legendary musty odor that forced previous recalls, Tylenol is now recalling one lot of its 8 Hour Caplets. This is the fourth Tylenol recall this year. CNN reports:
The latest recall affects Tylenol 8-hour caplets 50 count, sold in the United States and Puerto Rico. The lot number is BCM155. Complaints of a musty or moldy odor led to the recall, McNeil Consumer Healthcare said. The odor, the company believes, is caused by the presence of trace amounts of a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole.
McNeil said the “risk of adverse medical events is remote.”
Last month, Johnson and Johnson CEO William Weldon delivered both a mea culpa and clear admission to lawmakers that his company let the public down through numerous recent drug recalls.
Has McNeil still not cleaned up that filthy Tylenol plant?
