Drug Recall + Wooden Pallets. What?!

June 17, 2010

As many of you know, Johnson and Johnson had a HUGE recall of some medications in January 2010; Tyenol Extra Strength Rapid Release Gelcaps and Benadryl Allergy Ultratabs.

Well, the reason for the recall was WOODEN PALLETS. What?! is exactly what went through my mind. My mind was blown, once again.

“The January 15th, 2010 recall was initiated as a result of consumer complaints of a musty or moldy odor that has since been linked to the presence of trace amounts of a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA). After a thorough investigation, it was determined that the source of TBA was the result of a breakdown of a chemical that is applied to wood used to build wooden pallets that transport and store product packaging materials.”

Almost every product is shipped on pallets. Food products, baby products, medical products… There are so many scary thoughts circling my brain right now, I am not sure how to even express them.
