(FORT WASHINGTON, Pa.) -- Johnson & Johnson's McNeil Consumer Healthcare announced a voluntary nationwide recall Monday of one product lot of Tylenol 8 Hour caplets 50 count bottles at the retail level.
McNeil decided the recall was necessary after receiving "a small number of complaints" about a "musty or moldy odor."
The company said Monday that this odor is uncharacteristic of this product and thought to be produced by the presence of trace amounts of a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole.
Johnson & Johnson has recalled other products over the past year for the same or similar reasons.
