Recall: Tylenol, Motrin, St. Joseph, Benadryl + more

Yesterday, Johnson & Johnson issued a recall for a number of products because of an unusual mildew-like smell in certain product lots, including Tylenol, Motrin, St. Joseph, Benadryl Tabs, Rolaids and Simply Sleep. If you have any of these products in your home, you might want to read the press release - it includes links to pictures and lot numbers of the affected products. Thanks, Chrys!


  1. In all my adult years, I've not been affected by a recall. 3 bottles of tylenol rapid release and all 8 bottles of my rolaids are recalled. I thought the rolaids I cracked open 2 weeks ago tasted extra funky, but chalked it up to primarily using tums.

    I'm ignorant in this department... What next?

  2. These instructions are at the bottom of the press release - that's your next step! :)

    Consumers who purchased product from the lots included in this recall should stop using the product and contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare for instructions on a refund or replacement. For these instructions or information regarding how to return or dispose of the product, consumers should log on to the internet at or call 1-888-222-6036
