The smell they believe is related to a trace amount of TBA (2,4,6 tribromoanisole). The TBA could have come from a chemical preservative that is applied to wood such as the pallets that were used during transportation. The company received four consumers that reported the smell, which prompted the voluntary recall.

The recall involves around 57,000 bottles, but they believe there are less than 6,000 bottles that are in the marketplace. The two lots were shipped to US and Puerto Rico locations between October 19, 2010 and December 28, 2010.
