The recall seems to focus on Benadryl Allergy UltraTab packages containing 100 pills.
The problem with the recalled Benadryl pills is a musty, moldy smell coming from the product.
This sounds bad, like the allergy pills are unhealthy. According to the company this is not the case. “The risk of serious adverse medical events is remote,” the company said in its notice of the latest addition to its recall list.
The problem actually has to do with the pallets used to ship and store the products, according to the manufacturer, McNeil Consumer Products.
A product used on the wooden crates and pallets breaks down, releasing the odor.
Still, no one wants to eat smelly pills.
If you have any of the effected products, which includes not only Benadryl, but also Tylenol, Motrin, and Rolaids, then you can get a refund or replacement.
The store that sold you the product may be able to help you.
The official way to do it is to call 1-888-222-6036, or visit the McNeil Product Recall Information page.
