More moldy meds recalled

Check your medicine cabinet - recall greatly expanded

it's not just Tylenol that' smaking people sick.

 Less than a month after the company recalled Tylenol Arthritis Pain Caplets due to
a moldy smell that made some people sick, Johnson & Johnson has issued a
massive recall that includes more meds with the same problem.

Affected medications include certain batches of regular and extra-strength
Tylenol, children’s Tylenol, eight-hour Tylenol, Tylenol arthritis, Tylenol
PM, children’s Motrin, Motrin IB, Benadryl, Rolaids, Simply Sleep, and St.
Joseph’s aspirin. A full list of recalled medications may be found at
www.mcneilproductrecall.com.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), about 70
people have noticed the distinct moldy smell or experienced sickness due to
the unusual odor, reporting symptoms including nausea, diarrhea, vomiting,
and stomach pain. The smell occurred due to a breakdown of a chemical in the
wooden pallets used for shipping.
