A shortage of OTC medicines such as Tylenol. This is due to a recall by the manufacturer. This is the first major recall of Tylenol since the contamination scandal 30 years ago.

Johnson and Johnson the manufacturer of the OTC had reports of musty, moldy smelling medications and other quality controll issues so they pulled them from shelves. And more likely not to be replaced this cold and flu season.
