Tylenol Extra Strength Caplets

(Best Syndication News) - There is a new Tylenol Recall announced on June 28, 2011, which involves one lot of TYLENOL®, Extra Strength Caplets. The product was recalled after the makers, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, received complaints from consumers of a musty, moldy odor smell coming from the OTC medicine. The product was recalled voluntarily as a precautionary measure.

The company said that the smell comes from a trace amount of chemical 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA). The Tylenol caplets were manufactured in February 2009.

Symptoms reported with this have been temporary and have been only non-serious gastrointestinal symptoms. The company says it would be very rare for a serious medical event to occur from this recalled medication.
