The recalled Tylenol 8-Hour Extended release caplets are 150-count bottles with the UPC code 300450297181 and lot number ADM074.

As with the many previous Tylenol 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 TCA and TBA, produced by the breakdown of a fungicide used to treat wooden pallets on which the tainted Tylenol products were stored.

Johnson & Johnson 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 wholesale-level 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 8-Hour Extended Release (207,288 bottles)
  • 1 lot of Tylenol Sinus (108,336 packages)
  • 1 lot of Sudafed PE Cold/Cough Multisymptom (134,568 packages)
  • 2 lots of Benadryl Allergy Sinus Headache (87,216 packages)
