Recently, Johnson & Johnson issued a voluntary recall of several lots of Tylenol Arthritis product. The company then expanded the recall to include ALL 100 count bottles of the Tylenol Arthritis product with the EZ-Open red cap. Consumers can obtain a replacement or refund from Johnson & Johnson by contacting the company.
The recall was prompted by a moldy smell from the product. Consumers have reported stomach pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea when using the recalled Tylenol Arthritis pills. There have been no reported deaths or serious injuries connected to the recalled Tylenol Arthritis product. However, there has been no in-depth study of the chemical thought to be at the root of the musty smell, so consumers should not use the Tylenol Arthritis pills that have been recalled. The chemical in question was used on the pallets that were used to transport the recalled Tylenol Arthritis.
