The musty, moldy smell that has caused a headache for the makers of Tylenol products is forcing more recalls, myFOXny.com reported Friday.
The latest recall by Johnson & Johnson's McNeil consumer health care unit covers 21 lots of products, including Children's Tylenol. The lots involved are sold in the United States, Fiji, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago, and Jamaica.
Those are being recalled because they are tied to a large January 15 recall that is blamed on shipping pallets.
The company said the new lots were added to the recall as a precaution after an internal review found those lots, shipped and stored before January 15, had been on the same type of wooden pallets. The smell is caused by small amounts of a chemical associated with the treatment of the pallets.
"The risk of serious adverse medical events is remote," the company said in its statement detailing the voluntary recall.
