The FDA has issued a statement announcing the recall of Tylenol Arthritis Pain Caplet 100 count bottles that have the red colored EZ-Open top. The recall is being made by Mcneil Consumer Healthcare.
News of the recall was posted on the Food & Drug Administrations website today.
The recall stems from complaints of a moldy odor which may result in nausea, stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea for the user. The symptoms are caused by trace amounts of the chemical 2, 4, 6-tribromoanisole resulting from the breakdown of a chemical used to treat wooden pallets that transport and store packaging material.
The statement mentioned several side effects including vomiting and diarrhea that are "temporary and non-serious."
The recall only applies to this exact model and not other products labeled Tylenol Arthritis.
