A new warning message will soon be found on bottles of Tylenol as the company hopes to eliminate drug overdoses.

Tylenol maker Johnson & Johnson says the warning will appear on the cap of new bottles of extra strength Tylenol starting in October and on most other Tylenol bottles in the coming months. 

The warning makes it clear the drug contains acetaminophen, a main ingredient that's also the nation's leading cause of sudden liver failure for those who overdose.
