McNeil Consumer Healthcare is recalling one lot, Lot# BCM155, of Tylenol 8 Hour caplets, 50 count bottles. This recall is being conducted following 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 the chemical 2,4,6-tribromoanisole. This voluntary action is being taken as a precaution and the risk of adverse medical events is remote.
Consumers in possession of this lot of Tylenol 8 Hour caplets should stop using it immediately and contact their healthcare provider if they experience any adverse events related to use of the product.
