Tylenol recall involves one lot number for troubled Johnson & Johnson unit. In announcing the latest Tylenol recall, the company also expanded a Jan. 14 recall of Tylenol and other medicines.
Health care products maker Johnson & Johnson recalled another lot of Tylenol on Tuesday due to a musty odor which has already triggered five other recalls of the company's over-the-counter medicines.
The latest recall involves more than 34,000 bottles of Tylenol 8 Hour Extended Release, which were distributed throughout the U.S. All of the products come from lot number ADM074, which appears on the bottom of the bottles.
The odor is thought to be caused by trace amounts of a chemical used to treat wooden pallets on which bottles are stored and shipped. The company previously said it has stopped using wooden pallets.
J&J's reputation has been battered in the past year by a string of recalls ranging from over-the-counter medicines like Children's Tylenol and Benadryl to contact lenses and hip replacements.
