Tylenol makers’ recall of over-the-counter medicines has expanded to include 21 additional lots of Tylenol products, including some that were sold in the United States.

This is a "follow-up” of the original recall announced on Jan. 15, which followed complaints of a “musty or moldy odor” linked to a chemical used to treat the wooden shipping pallets, Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil Consumer Healthcare division announced in a press release on Thursday.

The affected products have been sold in the United States, Fiji, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago, and Jamaica.

These products were added to the recall list as a “precautionary measure” after an internal review revealed that some packaging materials in the identified lots had been shipped and stored on the same kind of wooden pallets that had been treated with the chemical that caused the odor, called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA).


The recall is voluntary, and consumers who have used the recalled products are unlikely to see serious negative health effects, the company said.

The product list is on the next page.

Great. Just great. Tylenol is the only med my Mother is allowed to take for pain other than Tramadol.
The future is better than the past. Despite the crepehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands...with tools...with horse sense and science and engineering.

Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done. One could write a history of science in reverse by assembling the solemn pronouncements of highest authority about what could not be done and could never happen.  - RAH
