    Exclamation ATTENTION: Johnson & Johnson issues massive recall of Tylenol

    NEW YORK Johnson & Johnson issued a massive recall Friday of over-the-counter drugs including Tylenol, Motrin and St. Joseph's aspirin because of a moldy smell that has made people sick.

    It was the second such recall in less than a month because of the smell, which regulators said was first reported to McNeil in 2008. Federal regulators criticized the company, saying it didn't respond to the complaints quickly enough, wasn't thorough in how it handled the problem and didn't inform the Food and Drug Administration quickly.

    The recall includes some batches of regular and extra-strength Tylenol, children's Tylenol, eight-hour Tylenol, Tylenol arthritis, Tylenol PM, children's Motrin, Motrin IB, Benadryl Rolaids, Simply Sleep, and St. Joseph's aspirin.

    The FDA and Johnson & Johnson's McNeil Consumer Healthcare Products said they did not know the number of bottles recalled. It included caplet and geltab products sold in the Americas, the United Arab Emirates, and Fiji.

    Consumers should check the full list at http://www.mcneilproductrecall.com to identify the recalled batches.

    The FDA said about 70 people have been either sickened by the odor including nausea, stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea or noticed it.

    Bumping this up.


    Please check the site, there are Rolaids, Motrin and others on there, not only Tylenol. They offer the ability for 'you' to put in the lot number of things that may be in your home and you will get a message letting you know if your products lot number is involved.

    Don't go by what you perceive as no odor. There's a website with the UPC and lot numbers. My bottle had no odor either but was on the recall list. Here's the site. Put in the LOT number.
