    Thank you for posting this I had 5 bottels in my stock I just bought at wag the last time it was on sale!!!!! One bottel was in use already! Is this not the second time they have had a recall in a short time?

    • Yes it is Marcia! I have to look through my bottles too because I know I have a few.

    Thank you! I found one bottle that was recalled. I also brought Tylenol to keep at work, so need to check that one as well.

  • Alison

    Thank you for posting this, we have 2 Tylenol bottles that are affected and 2 Childrens motrin, unfortunately we had 3 but my son broke his collarbone and we used 1.5 bottles 🙁

    Hi all. As a pharmacist and a mom, I just wanted to let you all know that the reason the products were recalled is because some of the lots smell musty. However, nothing is physically wrong with the medicine itself. So, for all of you moms who gave your children some of the product, that’s fine. No harm done! I hope you feel relieved!

  • Krissy

    Thanks Melissa. That does make me feel better! My husband takes Simply Sleep every night. I’m sure we have already gone through some of the recalled bottles.

    I found some Tylenol that I bought in one of the last rounds of Kmart Super Doubles. So if anyone else hit the Kmart SuperDoubles, Kmart definitely had some of the affected product.

    Whew! saw Rolaids was included but luckily only the 100 & 150 count bottles not the little rolls that many of us have been getting for free with the $4/2 Q.
