McNeil Consumer Healthcare announced a voluntary recall of one lot of Tylenol (acetaminophen) Extra Strength Caplets, 225-count bottles. This recall was initiated following a small number of reports of a musty, moldy odor that has been linked to trace amounts of a chemical known as 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA) used in the packing pallets. TBA can generate an offensive odor and has been associated with temporary and non-serious gastrointestinal symptoms. The risk of serious adverse events is remote.
The affected products being recalled have the Lot #ABA619 and UPC code 300450444271.
