NEW BRUNSWICK - Johnson & Johnson has announced yet another Tylenol recall due to a musty moldy odor linked to a trace chemical.

The company's McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit is recalling more than 60,000 bottles of Tylenol Extra Strength Caplets made in February 2009 and distributed in the U.S.

The chemical, known as TBA, is a byproduct of a chemical preservative sometimes used on shipping pallets. Besides causing an unpleasant odor, TBA has been associated with temporary and non-serious gastrointestinal symptoms.

Since September 2009, New Brunswick-based Johnson & Johnson has had about two dozen recalls of prescription and nonprescription medicines, replacement hips, contact lenses and diabetes test strips, including tens of millions of bottles of children's and adult Tylenol and Motrin.

Consumers who purchased product from the lot included in this recall should stop using the product and contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare, by calling 1-888-222-6036 for instructions about receiving a refund or product coupon.

Product Name Lot Number UPC Code TYLENOL®, Extra Strength Caplets, 225 count ABA619 300450444271
