Tylenol: 1982

tylenol 1982 recall

Johnson & Johnson issued a massive recall of 31 million bottles of Tylenol following the death of seven Chicago area residents who took pills laced with cyanide. Someone likely poisoned the drugs while they were still on store shelves. As a result of the crime, any pill bottle you buy now comes with a tamper-proof safety seal.
