You may want to take a long look inside your medicine cabinet. First it was children's Tylenol; now drug makers are asking you to get rid of more popular over-the-counter medications.
Johnson and Johnson is recalling four lots of Benadryl tablets and one lot of extra strength Tylenol rapid release gels following complaints about a moldy smell.
If it sounds familiar that's because the company has issued three similar recalls in last eight months. The odor apparently comes from a chemical used to treat wooden pallets from the packaging, and consumers reported nausea and sickness.
If you've purchased these products, the FDA says you should stop using them. You can even get a refund or replacement.
If you've taken the medication and think you've experienced an adverse reaction, you can make a report on the FDA's website
. If you do have health concerns, you'll also want to be sure to contact your doctor.
Benadryl Allergy ULTRATAB: Lot Number AJA0008, ADA194, ABA022, ABA264
Extra Strength Tylenol Rapid Release Gels: Lot Number ASA202
