A moldy odor has again stricken Johnson & Johnson’s Tylenol, and the company is recalling another lot of the over-the-counter painkiller. J&J, which has recalled tens of millions of bottles of Tylenol and other consumer medicines in the past year because of complaints of a musty or moldy odor in the product, is recalling another lot. The company, which 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, said almost 128,000 bottles of Tylenol have been recalled in the latest action.
The product involved is adult Tylenol eight-hour caplets sold in 50-count bottles in the United States and Puerto Rico. The company said the recalled lot was made in March at a factory in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, operated by J&J’s McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit. J&J shut down the McNeil plant the following month and is upgrading the facility to correct quality control lapses discovered by U.S. Food and Drug Administration inspectors. The FDA cited thick dust, grime and contaminated ingredients at the Fort Washington plant. J&J plans to reopen the plant next year, and is using other McNeil plants to help offset lost production of the recalled products.
