Another Tylenol Recall!

submitted on October 19, 2010 by midget in "Products / Gadgets"

McNeil Consumer Healthcare, which has been plagued by manufacturing problems this year, is issuing another recall. This time for Tylenol 8-hour caplets.

The Tylenol caplets are 50-count bottles contained in lot number BCM155. Consumers will find the lot number listed on the side of the bottle label.

      Isn't it though. I'm sure consumer trust in Tylenol has plummeted. Maybe they should look into making something else Mr Green

    That's terrible. The last time they had a recall, I called them to complain and they sent me a coupon for a free bottle of Tylenol. I never used it. Think I'll just throw it away now.

    They need to overhaul their QC department, get some people who have good noses it seems like most of the problems are with odors.

      wow! How are they able to stay in business with so many recalls in a short period of time? Why haven't they been shut down?

      I mean, if a restaurant serves you bad food and enough people get sick the health dept shuts you down until changes are made and you pass a health inspection.

      How are they allowed to still make products and sell them to the public?

      They were fined but obviously that wasn't enough.

    I'm done with Tylenol. I'm sick of this junk. Thinking about taking medication for something always makes me leery as I'm one of those people who won't unless it's necessary. Then to have a company like this that obviously doesn't care about consumer safety and is out to just make a buck, scares me more. Do it once, it's a mistake. Do it twice, I'll cut you some slack but don't do it again. Do it 3 times and you've lost me as a customer for a while. Do it this many times and you've lost me and everyone I know as a customer, and you deserve to be bankrupt.

    Their Rolaids also were recalled back in the spring & their St Joseph 81mg asprin also. I filled out a form on their site & got coupons to replace theones I had to throw out. The Rolaids are out of stock again, don't know if they got recalled again or not. These were made at their Puerto Rico plant. Something about fungicide being used in the plant & then leaving the bottles open while waiting to be filled.
