The makers of Tylenol announced another recall in a long line of problems concerning a musty odor.
McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., announced the recall of one product lot (60,912 bottles) of Extra Strength Caplets, 225 count bottles, distributed in the U.S.
The voluntary recall is centered around the ongoing problem with 2,4,6-tribromoanisole, a trace chemical used as a fungicide in packaging materials.
Manufacturers of Tylenol said 2,4,6-tribromoanisole generates an offensive odor and has been linked to “temporary and non-serious gastrointestinal symptoms.”
The recalled pills carry the lot number of ABA619 and the UPC code 300450444271.
Consumers with the recalled pills can call 1-888-222-6036 for information on replacing them or find more information at Tylenol.com.
