Children’s Tylenol and Motrin recall

CNN reports that McNeil PPC, a division of Johnson and Johnson, is recalling some batches of junior strength Motrin, Children’s Tylenol grape meltaway tablets, and other versions of the drugs because of a mold-mildew type odor.

The company says the smell was caused by a chemical called “2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA),” which is applied to wooden pallets that are used to transport and store packaging materials.

McNeil says they’ve received some complaints from consumers about “non-serious” stomach problems, nausea and diarrhea. Read more about the recall here.
