This week, Johnson & Johnson issued a recall of their Prezista pills after reports that they smelled of mold. The medication is used to treat HIV.
Company officials determined that at least 5 batches of the product were contaminated by tribomoanisole. Tribomoanisole, or TBA, is often used to treat wooden pallets used for transportation of products. Several J&J products have been contaiminated by TBA over the past couple of years.
The first recall related to TBA was issued in late 2009 and involved J&J's Tylenol Arthritis Pain Caplets. Side-effects related to TBA consumption include gastrointestinal illnesses.
