J&J Recalls Another Lot Of Tylenol Because Of Musty Odor

  • Reuters, Tuesday, October 19, 2010 8:22 AM
Johnson & Johnson, which has recalled tens of millions of bottles of consumer medicines in the past year because of complaints of a musty or moldy odor, said it was voluntarily recalling another lot -- almost 128,000 bottles -- of Tylenol, Ransdell Pierson reports. The product was identified as adult Tylenol eight-hour caplets sold in 50-count bottles in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

"This voluntary action is being taken as a precaution and the risk of adverse medical events is remote," the company said in a release. The spate of recalls has tarnished the reputation of J&J and its consumer brands, Pierson points out.

The lot was made in March at a factory in Fort Washington, Penn., operated by J&J's McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit. The plant is currently being upgraded to correct quality control lapses discovered by U.S. Food and Drug Administration inspectors.
