Tylenol product recalled after complaints of moldy odor

The maker of Benadryl and Tylenol has added another popular over-the-counter drug to its growing list of recalled products.

The latest recall affects Tylenol 8-hour caplets 50 count, sold in the United States and Puerto Rico. The lot number is BCM155.

Complaints of a musty or moldy odor led to the recall, McNeil Consumer Healthcare said. The odor, the company believes, is caused by the presence of trace amounts of a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole.

McNeil said the "risk of adverse medical events is remote."
