Johnson & Johnson is expanding a recall of over-the-counter drugs including Tylenol and Motrin IB because of a musty or moldy smell.

The McNeil Consumer Healthcare business says it is recalling 21 lots of over-the-counter drugs sold in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Fiji, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica.

The drugs being recalled include Benadryl, Children’s Tylenol, Motrin IB, Tylenol Extra Strength, Tylenol Day & Night and Tylenol PM.

The New Brunswick, N.J., company made a large recall of those drugs and over-the-counter products in January, saying about 70 people were sickened by the smell. The odor was linked to a chemical in shipping pallets.

Johnson & Johnson says the latest recall applies to products made before the January recall.
