NEW BRUNSWICK - Tylenol caplets are being recalled by New Brunswick-based Johnson & Johnson after some consumers complained about a musty or moldy odor.

The recall covers one lot of Tylenol 8-Hour caplets in 50-count bottles. The lot number is BCM 155. J&J's McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit says the moldy odor is thought to be due to the presence of trace amounts of a chemical.

McNeil says the recall is precautionary and the problems reported by consumers were temporary and not serious. The company says the risk of serious harm is remote.

Anyone who has the recalled product at home should contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare for instructions about receiving a refund or product coupon.
