The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said late on Monday that a voluntary recall of Tylenol Arthritis Pain Caplets is being expanded voluntarily by J & J. One reason for the recall was the unusual musty or mildew-like odor that was associated with nausea, stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea as per mentioned by the FDA .
It involved five lots of the product in November and may have been caused by the breakdown of a chemical used to treat wooden pallets that transport and store packaging materials. The FDA said consumers who bought Tylenol Arthritis Pain Caplet 100-count bottles with the red cap from the lots included in the recall should stop using the product and contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare for a refund or replacement. Also mentioned is the health effects. Although the compound have not been well studied, the events reported to the company have been temporary and not serious.
