FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., is recalling one product lot of TYLENOL® 8 Hour caplets 50 count bottles to the retail level.  McNeil is taking this action following a small number of complaints of a musty or moldy odor.  The uncharacteristic odor is thought to be caused by the presence of trace amounts of a chemical called  2,4,6-tribromoanisole.  This voluntary action is being taken as a precaution and the risk of adverse medical events is remote.  To date, observed events reported to McNeil for this lot were temporary and non-serious.

The product lot number for the recalled product can be found on the side of the bottle label.
