Many post-ops are limited to Tylenol or acetominophen for their pain relief needs due to ulcer issues.  For that reason, I’m providing this information.

There is a Tylenol brand recall going on right now.  The following information is from the Chicago Tribune:

Tylenol recall expanded

December 30, 2009

Johnson & Johnson is expanding a voluntary recall of Tylenol Arthritis Pain Caplets due to consumer reports of a moldy smell that can cause nausea and sickness.

According to a statement posted to the Food and Drug Administration Web site late Monday, the company is recalling all product lots of the Arthritis Pain Caplets 100-count bottles with the red “ez-open” cap.

The company recalled five lots last month after consumers complained of a musty, mildew-like odor that triggered nausea, stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea. J&J described the reactions as “temporary” and “non-serious” in its Dec. 18 release, saying then it believed the contamination was due to the breakdown of a chemical in the wooden pallets used for shipping.

Consumers seeking a refund or replacement can call J&J at 888-222-6036.
