Hi rose, it does indeed have an odor!! I have a feeling it's the "other inactive ingredients" that give off this smell.

"Each capsule contains cephalexin monohydrate equivalent to 250 mg, 333 mg, 500 mg or 750 mg of cephalexin. The capsules also contain cellulose, D & C Yellow No. 10, F D & C Blue No. 1, F D & C Yellow No. 6, gelatin, magnesium stearate, silicone, titanium dioxide, and other inactive ingredients"
