The popular over the counter painkiller Tylenol® has been the subject of recalls due to quality and manufacturing problems.
Since 2009, McNeil Consumer Products/Janssen (subsidiaries of Johnson & Johnson) has recalled different formulations of Tylenol® worldwide for a variety of problems that could affect patient health including in some cases liver failure. Elevated levels of acetaminophen above the dosage listed on labeling have been documented in some of the formulations, increasing the risks.
Consumers have been advised to discontinue use of Tylenol if there is an unusual odor or if the lot number is included on this list of Johnson & Johnson recalled products. Although the recalled products have been removed from stores, consumers may still have previously purchased Tylenol.
Patients who have taken one of the products from the recalled lots should keep the intact product bottle, box, or blister pack with the lot, expiration date and any remaining product.
