Tylenol – Toss It Out

For those who didn’t know, like myself until the other day there was a very large recall on all Tylenol products. There was some sort of smell that got tied into the medicine, which is a material used for treating wood. I for one have always been a proponent of Tylenol, it does a great job most of the time but I’m surprised that I didn’t hear about this until recently. So if you have any Tylenol in the house make sure to toss it out, I now most people use Panadol in Kuwait but recently they introduced Tylenol and I brought some over from the US with me when I came back from the US. I noticed on this trip that there weren’t any Tylenol in any of the shelves of the pharmacy, I asked why and they said they didn’t have stock of them, nothing about the recall, so I just picked up some Advil. I prefer Advil most of the time, but its only available in the US and not every location had so I picked up Tylenol. I have a few bottles of the gel caps and they are all going to be thrown in the trash. I was wondering why I got rid of the headache but my stomach was acting up after taking Tylenol, but it didn’t happen every time. Not worth the risk, I’m tossing it all out and if you know anyone using Tylenol then toss it out too.

The FDA said about 70 people have been either sickened by the odor – including nausea, stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea – or noticed it. The recall includes some batches of regular and extra-strength Tylenol, children’s Tylenol, eight-hour Tylenol, Tylenol arthritis, Tylenol PM, children’s Motrin, Motrin IB, Benadryl Rolaids, Simply Sleep, and St. Joseph’s aspirin.
