Musty Tylenol

Today I read Johnson & Johnson announced another Tylenol recall. This recall is due to a “musty odor”.   Now the fact that McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit of Johnson & Johnson is making the recall is not too surprising as this is not the first time they have issued a recall on Tylenol.

This recall is for Tylenol Extra Strength Caplets.  Total recall is 60,912 bottles of 225 caplets.  That is 13.705,200 caplets affected by this recall, prompted by “a small number of reports” of  a musty smell.  The odor (apparently not new to Tylenol) was found in the past to “2,4,6-tribromoanisole.  (2,4,6-Tribromoanisole is a chemical brominated derivative of Anisole, used as fungicide).  At least that is my understanding of the responsible for the odor.  In 2010 J&J recalled over the counter products. involving this same chemical which was used to treat wooden pallets, which were used to transport and store the product. In 2010 and 2011 Pfizer recalled Lipitor after reports of an odor linked to a third party supplier of bottles which had been exposed to this chemical.  So this contamination is nothing new drug manufacturers

The part I find funny is timeliness of the recall.  I can’t say what relationship the manufacture date, and time of resale is.  These Tylenol Extra Strength Caplets were apparently made in February of 2009. That is over 2 years ago.  Do they make these medicines that far in advance they would just now be hitting the store shelves?  I don’t know.  It just seems most of the caplets would have already been used or disposed of by now.  I just looked at a bottle of Ibuprofen, I purchased about a month ago and it’s expiration date is February of 2012.

That Is How I See It.
