Tylenol is adding more product lots to a recall it issued January 15th for medicines that smell musty.

McNeil Consumer Healthcare now says additional products of Benadryl Allergy Ultratab tablets, 100 count, sold in the U.S. and one product lot of Extra Strength Tylenol Rapid Release Gels, 50 count sold in the U.S. Trinidad and Tobago, Bermuda and Puerto Rico are involved.

The Tylenol pills include the following code numbers:

NDC Code #
50580-488-50

UPC # 300450488503

With lot numbers ASA202

 

The Benadryl tablets have these codes

NDC Code #
50580-226-10

UPC # 312547170338

With lot numbers AJA008, ADA194, ABA022, ABA264.

 

The January 15th, 2010 recall was initiated as a result of consumer complaints of a musty or moldy odor that has since been linked to the presence of trace amounts of a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA). After a thorough investigation, it was determined that the source of TBA was the result of a breakdown of a chemical that is applied to wood used to build wooden pallets that transport and store product packaging materials.

Consumers who purchased product from the lots included in this recall should stop using the product and contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare for instructions on a refund or replacement. For these instructions or information regarding how to return or dispose of the product, consumers log on to the company's web site or call 1-888-222-6036 (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time, and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time).

You can also go here to get a refund.
