care of his ExtraStrength Tylenol problem real We had one bottle of the capsules here at the and that bottle is now in my on my where its going to McNeal But local pharmacies have experienced somewhat larger doses of the nationwide confusion and concern over recent Extra Strength Tylenol cyanide Customers at Eckerds Drugs have been asking and returning unopened or partially used containers of the Tylenol pharmacist Dennis Wiesner The people seemed confused that some of the lot numbers showed up in San Antonio when the deaths were in and most of the capsules were manufactured at the companys plant in Round Wiesner So I guess the proximity has caused some State officials inspected the Round Rock plant and gave it a clean bill of ac cording to Associated Press Many of our customers have even said after the situation is they wont ever buy Tylenol Thats unfortunate for the which was probably the leading brand name in painkillers before Eckerds customers are buying different brands that contain the same chemical found in But even you can tell people are a little gunshy about buying Wiesner Its like no one is buying anything unless they really need Wiesners personal reaction to the cyanide contaminations I Its hard to imagine that someone would strike out so Vollbrechts Pharmacy has had much less consumer We had one customer bring in a sample that had come in the but thats the pharmacist there The pharmacist at Peerless Pharmacy said most of his customers joke about the Somebody will how many Tylenols did you sell or something like But its the publicity the media gives the crazy people out there that inspires The less said about the Scott Schumann with Landa Pharmacy weve had calls from concerned and I basically told them if the bottle had been partially used and there was no ill effects then theyve got a good In people have said the incident has made them Schumann It makes me We took ours off the shelves the minute we said pharmacist Duke Rutkowski with Comal Our customers are primarily over and they are very health But we havent had many so Im sure theyve been watching the news as closely as I Rutkowskis personal reaction to the cyanide contaminations was the culprit was probably a disgruntled employee who wanted to get back at the Tylenol But it was a very stupid he You dont hurt innocent people when you want to get back at Just go up and knock the starch out of The cyanide contaminations caused Mountain Valley Pharmacy in Sattler to question its own We took all Tylenol off the even the but were still selling generic brands of Tylenol and prescription forms of What happened is certainly an isolated but weve had second thoughts about our security pharmacist Ronald Armer So were in the process of installing sliding glass doors on our wall and were going to keep all our overthecounter drugs under lock and In our the customer will simply have to be waited and the customers weve asked said they wouldnt mind the extra wait for the peace of mind it would give Armer Its possible that other contaminations can occur at the manufacturer or the but here at the we plan on eliminating the possibility of the pharmacist In Armer said the whole incident could cause a shift from the large drugstore chains back to the oldfashioned I think the extra expense were going to with the glass doors will give our customers the peace of mind a large chain cant
