RECALL: More Tylenol

Johnson & Johnson is recalling one product lot of Tylenol Extra Strength Caplets made in February 2009 and distributed in the U.S. The recall totals 60,912 bottles, each of which has 225 caplets.
McNeil, a division of Johnson & Johnson, said it has received a small number of reports about the pills' odor, which has been linked in past J&J recalls to the presence of trace amounts of "2,4,6-tribromoanisole",  a byproduct of a chemical preservative sometimes used on shipping pallets.
Besides causing an unpleasant odor, it has been associated with temporary and non-serious gastrointestinal symptom.
