WASHINGTON, June 21 (UPI) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said McNeil Consumer Healthcare has expanded a Jan. 15 recall to include certain Benadryl and Tylenol products.
The FDA said the expansion involves four product lots of Benadryl Allergy Ultratab tablets sold in the United States and one product lot of Extra Strength Tylenol Rapid Release Gels sold in the United States, Trinidad and Tobago, Bermuda and Puerto Rico.
Being recalled are Benadryl Ultratab Lot Nos. AJA008, ADA194, ABA022 and ABA264, as well as Tylenol Rapid Release Gels Lot No. ASA202.
Officials said the original recall was initiated as a result of consumer complaints of a musty or moldy odor that has since been linked to the presence of trace amounts of a chemical used to build wooden pallets that transport and store product packaging materials.
Consumers who purchased any of the recalled products can contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare at 888-222-6036 for information on how to obtain a refund or replacement.
