Johnson & Johnson Recalls Even More Tylenol
March 30, 2011 — Yet another lot of Tylenol has been recalled by Johnson & Johnson's McNeil division.
The latest recall involves one lot — 34,056 150-count bottles — of Tylenol 8-Hour Extended Release caplets.
The recalled Tylenol 8-Hour Extended release caplets are 150-count bottles with the lot number ADM074 and the UPC code 300450297181.
As with its many previous recalls, the latest Tylenol recall is due to a musty or moldy smell. The odor is thought to be caused by trace amounts of the extremely odorous compounds TBA and TCA, produced by the breakdown of a fungicide used to treat wooden pallets on which the products were stored.
The company has also added 10 lots of various products, including Tylenol 8-Hour caplets, to its Jan. 14 wholesale-level recall of various Tylenol, Benadryl, Sudafed, Sinutab, and Rolaids products. This recall does not affect products distributed at the retail level.
The wholesale recall adds some 717,696 bottles or packages to the Jan. 14 recall:
- 5 lots of Tylenol Arthritis Pain Extended-Release Geltabs (180,288 bottles)
- 1 lot of Tylenol Sinus (108,336 packages)
- 1 lot of Tylenol 8-Hour Extended Release (207,288 bottles)
- 2 lots of Benadryl Allergy Sinus Headache (87,216 packages)
- 1 lot of Sudafed PE Cold/Cough Multisymptom (134,568 packages)
The string of Johnson & Johnson recalls has gone on so long, and involved so many familiar brands, that the company has devoted an entire web site, mcneilproductrecall.com, to the recall

Reasons for Recall:
Liver damage from Tylenol or acetaminophen takes place when the enzymatic pathways of the liver are blocked or overtaxed by too much of acetaminophen's poisonous molecular remains after being metabolized.
This toxic molecular residue from Tylenol (sometimes referred to as “NAPQI”) accumulates in the liver and causes damage—and sometimes acute liver failure. Many other factors can contribute to an acetaminophen or Tylenol overdose. Certain medications such as Phenobarbital, anti-seizure medications, and certain anti-tuberculosis drugs can significantly increase the risk for liver damage.
