WASHINGTON DC (CBS4) – Complaints of a musty smell has spawned a recall of thousands of bottles of Tylenol.
Johnson and Johnson has recalled 34-thousand bottles of Tylenol 8 Hour Extended Relief sold in the United States from lot number ADM074. The number can be found printed on the bottom of the pill bottle.
This is the sixth time that the company has recalled over-the-counter medicine due to costumer complaints of a foul odor.
The company blamed the smell on a chemical that is used to treat the wooden pallets that the bottles are stored and shipped from.
The pills were manufactured in the same plant, McNeil’s plant in Fort Washington, PA, that produced recalled bottles of Tylenol in December and January. The plant closed in April of 2010.
