A recent recall of over-the-counter Tylenol has left many consumers wondering whether it's safe to buy a replacement bottle or whether it's time to turn to other options. The recall is just the latest in a series of Johnson & Johnson product recalls over the past few years, including other formulations of Tylenol.
In this instance, close to 70,000 bottles were recalled due to reports of a musty, moldy odor that has been linked to the chemical 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA), which can cause gastrointestinal symptoms.
USA Today reports:
"... [H]eat is effective for muscle strains and pain ... [O]ver-the-counter heat wraps ... can even be worn while walking ... One non-pill alternative for joint and muscle troubles is movement, such as walking, stretching and Pilates ... For headaches ... people can talk with their doctors about magnesium and vitamin B supplements as a preventative ... For more immediate head pain, he says, aromatherapy is worth a try."
