Tylenol Recall - June 2011

McNeil Consumer Healthcare announced another Tylenol recall. According to the site, The Company recalling TYLENOL®, Extra Strength Caplets, 225 count bottles, distributed in the U.S. McNeil is taking this action following a small number of odor reports, including musty, moldy odor. The uncharacteristic musty, moldy odor has been linked to the presence of trace amounts of a chemical known as 2, 4, 6-tribromoanisole (TBA).

This voluntary action is being taken as a precaution and the risk of serious adverse medical events is remote. TBA can generate an offensive odor and has been associated with temporary and non-serious gastrointestinal symptoms.
The product lot number for the recalled product can be found on the side of the bottle label.

Product Name: TYLENOL, Extra Strength Caplets, 225 count
Lot Number: ABA619
UPC Code: 300450444271

Consumers who purchased product from the lot included in this recall should stop using the product and contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare, either at or by calling 1-888-222-6036 (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time) for instructions about receiving a refund or product coupon. Consumers who have medical concerns or questions should contact their healthcare provider.
