Johnson & Johnson: $JNJ Announces Voluntary Recall of Certain OTC Products
March 29, 2011 - Fort Washington, PA - McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., is recalling one product lot of TYLENOL® 8 Hour Extended Release Caplets 150 count bottles distributed in the United States. McNeil is taking this action as part of our ongoing surveillance and monitoring efforts that identified a small number of complaints of a musty or moldy odor. The uncharacteristic odor is thought to be caused by the presence of trace amounts of chemicals called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA) and 2,4,6-trichloroanisole (TCA). This voluntary action is being taken as a precaution and the risk of adverse medical events is remote. The product was manufactured at the McNeil Consumer Healthcare plant in Fort Washington, PA prior to the company's voluntary closure of the facility in April 2010.
The lot number for the recalled product can be found on the side of the bottle label.
