Some years ago it was suggested this was actually a mistake in the Tylenol lab, as cyanide is used at one stage in testing the product. At the time this case took place I dumped a full bottle of the stuff down the toilet and, as I recall, didn't use Tylenol again for years. Now they're saying there may have been a real mad poisoner at work. http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/possible_breakthrough_in_tylenol_wniJTc0R9CDCiR1XO2cWRM

I know only the basics of this case. Did any of the victims' families end up in a civil suit with Tylenol? I don't ever recall reading anything about it, if it happened.

Was just bebopping around the forum and rediscovered a thread I posted on the same topic a while back. It's got some additional links in it:
