WASHINGTON (AP) - Health care products maker Johnson & Johnson
is recalling another lot of Tylenol products due to a musty odor which has already triggered five other recalls of the company's over-the-counter medicines.

The latest recall involves more than 34,000 bottles of Tylenol 8 Hour Extended Release, which were distributed throughout the U.S. All of the bottles are from a single lot.

The odor is thought to be caused by trace amounts of a chemical
used to treat wooden pallets on which bottles are stored and shipped.

The company also expanded a Jan. 14 recall of various Tylenol, Benadryl, Sudafed and Rolaids packages distributed to wholesalers
across the U.S. The latest action adds an additional 717,000 packets to the 47 million recalled in January.
