Washington, D.C. — Yet another product recall was made by Johnson & Johnson for Tylenol 8-Hour Extended Release Caplets over complaints about a strange, musty odor. Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil Consumer Health division has now announced it is recalling one lot (roughly 34,000 150-count bottles), reported ABC News.

The odor is allegedly being caused by trace amounts of chemicals called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA) and 2,4,6-trichloroanisole (TCA), which is coming from the breakdown of a chemical in the wood pallets used to transport and store the packaging materials for the medication bottles.

“McNeil is taking this action as part of our ongoing surveillance and monitoring efforts that identified a small number of complaints of a musty or moldy odor,” McNeil said in a statement.
