Rolaids Recall

Check out the latest Rolaids recall information from Johnson and Johnson (J&J) whose subsidiary company called McNeil Consumer Healthcare has to say about the recall. I wonder if there were any reported Rolaids recall incidents after this was made public last December.

MCNEIL CONSUMER HEALTHCARE ANNOUNCES VOLUNTARY RECALL OF ALL LOTS OF ROLAIDS® EXTRA STRENGTH SOFTCHEWS, ROLAIDS® EXTRA STRENGTH PLUS GAS SOFTCHEWS, AND ROLAIDS® MULTI-SYMPTOM PLUS ANTI-GAS SOFTCHEWS SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES

Fort Washington, PA (December 9, 2010) – McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. is voluntarily recalling all lots of ROLAIDS® Extra Strength Softchews, ROLAIDS® Extra Strength plus Gas Softchews, and ROLAIDS® Multi-Symptom plus Anti-Gas Softchews (full product details below) distributed in the United States. McNeil is taking this action following some consumer reports of foreign materials in the product, including metal and wood particles. The company’s investigation has determined that the materials were potentially introduced into the product during the manufacturing process at a third party manufacturer. While the risk of serious adverse health consequences is remote, McNeil Consumer Healthcare advises consumers who have purchased these recalled products to discontinue use.

While our investigation is ongoing we have suspended production of ROLAIDS® Extra Strength Softchews, ROLAIDS® Extra Strength plus Gas Softchews, and ROLAIDS® Multi-Symptom plus Anti-Gas Softchews and will not restart production until corrective actions have been implemented.

Consumers who purchased product included in this recall should contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare, either at www.rolaids.com or by calling 1-888-222-6036 (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time, and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time) for instructions about receiving a refund. Consumers who have medical concerns or questions should contact their healthcare provider.

Any adverse reactions may also be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program either online, by regular mail or by fax.

This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
