Johnson & Johnson recalls Tylenol for moldy smell
World leading drug manufacturer Johnson & Johnson recalled another a lot of pain relief drug Tylenol on Monday, after musty or moldy orders were reported coming from several bottles.
WORLD'S LEADING drug manufacturer Johnson & Johnson has recalled another lot of pain relief drug Tylenol on Monday, after musty or moldy orders were reported coming from several bottles. J&J has recalled almost 128,000 bottles of Tylenol in the latest action.

The US based pharmaceutical company said in a release, "This voluntary action is being taken as a precaution and the risk of adverse medical events is remote." A company spokeswoman identified the product as adult Tylenol eight-hour caplets sold in 50-count bottles in the United States and Puerto Rico.

The product was manufactured in March and comes from a plant in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, which was investigated by the FDA as part of the previous recalls, which cited dirty conditions and contaminated ingredients. The plant has since been shut down by Johnson and Johnson to correct quality control lapses discovered by U.S. Food and Drug Administration inspectors.

Earlier this year company recalled 53 million bottles of Tylenol, Motrin and antacid Rolaids because of musty or moldy odors. The smell was traced to a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole present in wooden pallets that transport and store product packaging materials.

Johnson & Johnson is facing a U.S. congressional probe of quality control lapses that have led to its numerous recent recalls of Tylenol, painkiller Motrin and allergy treatment Benadryl.
