60,912 bottles of Tylenol Extra Strength Caplets have been recalled in the United States. The FDA recall says the following:
McNeil Consumer Healthcare is recalling one product lot of Tylenol Extra Strength Caplets, 225 count bottles, distributed in the U.S. The recall stems from a small number of odor reports, including musty, moldy odor. The uncharacteristic musty, moldy odor has been linked to the presence of trace amounts of a chemical known as 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA). While not considered to be toxic, TBA can generate an offensive odor and has been associated with temporary and non-serious gastrointestinal symptoms.
So this is not a serious recall, but you can check if you have a bottle from Tylenol lot ABA619 and call 1-888-222-6036 for instructions on how to receive a refund.
