TYLENOL recalled AGAIN?

You all remember the Children's Tylenol medication recalled recently that took the medication completely of the market indefinitely? Well it happened again; this time, with the adult Tylenol medication. Complaints of a musty and moldy odor the company claims was possibly due to the presence of a chemical called 2, 4, 6-tribromoanisole, led to the recall of 127,728 bottles of Tylenol. What's more, CNNMoney confirmed Tuesday that the adult Tylenol was made at the same shuttered Fort Washington plant that produced all of the Johnson & Johnson's problematic children's Tylenol medicines.
