The New York Times recently reported that consumers need to be aware of another Tylenol recall. There was a previous recall the end of last year.
McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a unit of Johnson & Johnson, announced Tuesday afternoon that it was recalling more of its over-the-counter Tylenol products. In a statement, the company said that it was conducting a voluntary consumer recall of one product lot of eight-hour extended-release caplets because of a “musty or moldy odor.”
About 34,000 bottles are being recalled, according to a McNeil spokeswoman. The company says any health risk from the caplets is “remote.”
The company also announced it was expanding a previous recall announced in January. Unlike the Tylenol caplet recall, the expanded recall, which involves 10 lots of other products, is being undertaken on the wholesale level and is not based on adverse events, according to the company.
