Millions of people reach for Tylenol and its generic equivalents to relieve headaches and other kinds of minor pain. However, the active ingredient acetaminophen has the capacity to cause serious liver damage when taken in sufficiently large doses, or when it is mixed with other drugs.
One of the first medical product recalls took place about over three decades ago, after a disgruntled worker laced Tylenol capsules with cyanide. Unfortunately, Johnson and Johnson, the company that manufactures Tylenol, recently issued another recall of its products. This time, it was because of the dangers of acetaminophen rather than illegal tampering.
Symptoms of liver damage are often mistaken for flu symptoms and can include: loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting. Additionally, some defective Tylenol products had an unusual smell and this is an indication that incorrect amounts of acetaminophen were included.
Acetaminophen is not unique to Tylenol. Other medications that include it are:
- Tavist Allergy
- Drixoral Plus
If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of a defective Tylenol product, or has experienced an overdose of acetaminophen, compensation for damages may be deserved. Contact our attorneys for a free consultation.
