Tylenol Recall 2010

Saturday, May 1, 2010

Tylenol medicines are produced by Mc Neil Consumer Healthcare of Johnson & Johnson and they have recalled their medicines from the market for an ‘unusual moldy, musty or mildew-like’ odor. The recall announced this Friday was broad based and includes several other over the counter drugs like junior strength Motrin, Motrin caplets, children’s Tylenol grape meltaway tablets, Benadryl allergy ultratabs, extra strength Tylenol PM geltabs, St. Joseph aspirin chewable orange tablets and extra strength chewable Rolaids fresh mint tablets. The smell in the pills may result nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and other illness.

CNN reports that the “recall drew the FDA’s wrath on Johnson and Johnson for not reacting quickly to customer complaints and its failure to fix the problem.” Deborah Autor, director of FDA’s compliance office, responded that the company should have acted faster as every company has a responsibility to ensure high quality, safety and effectiveness of their products and protect customers.

The recalled drugs are widely sold through a number of retail stores that includes large chain drug stores, supermarkets and independent pharmacies. McNeil Consumer Healthcare, the producer of these medicines has to report FDA on its efforts to address the problems and prevent the future violations in 15 days. If they fail to correct the legal violations, it may result legal action which may include seizure and injunction.

Many consumers are worried as there are many people who have already given the medicine to their children. There is also a reason to worry because there may be deficiency of Tylenol in the market for some time due to the recall.
