Johnson & Johnson Recalls Tylenol Products on Odor Complaints

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) is recalling Tylenol products because of a musty odor, the company's third such recall in 12 months.

J&J is yanking a line of Tylenol 8-hour caplets containing 127,728 bottles after customers complained of a musty smell from the pills, Bloomberg News said. The smell may be related to a chemical that is applied to wooden pallets used to store packing materials.

"We believe it's from packing components and we're continuing to investigate," spokesman Marc Boston told Bloomberg News.

In December 2009, J&J recalled Tylenol Arthritis Pain Caplets after complaints about odors. In January the company recalled a range of over-the-counter products following similar complaints.
