It seems that every couple of months we get another Tylenol recall, and March 2011 is another one of those months.
McNeil, a division of Johnson & Johnson said in a statement that they were conducting a voluntary consumer recall of one product lot of eight-hour extended-release caplets because of a “musty or moldy odor.” Around 34,000 bottles are being recalled.
Just because one product line is never enough, there’s more to the Tylenol recall, with the company expanding a previous recall announced in January. The expanded recall, which involves 10 lots of other products, is being undertaken on the wholesale level and does not directly affect consumers.
