Antacid rolaids soft chews recalled after metal and wood found inside

13 million packages of Rolaids soft chews, over-the-counter antacid medications were recalled by Johnson & Johnson because consumers reported there were wood and metal particles within the products. McNeil Consumer Healthcare, part of Johnson & Johnson, assures that the chances of any serious health consequences for those who have bought these products is extremely "remote".

2010 has been a bad year for Johnson & Johnson, reportedly the largest health products company worldwide. Over 40 medications have been recalled so far this year because of problems with product contamination.

The company says all its Rolaids Extra Strength Softchews, Rolaids Extra Strength plus Gas Softchews, and Rolaids Multi-Symptom plus Anti-Gas Softchews that have been distributed in the USA are being recalled. According to McNeil Consumer Healthcare, initial investigations indicate that the contamination occurred during the manufacturing process in a non-Johnson & Johnson manufacturing plant.

People who have purchased the recalled products should not use them, the company adds.

Production of the recalled products has been suspended while an investigation is underway. The company says production will only resume when measures to make sure product contamination does not occur again have been implemented.

People who have purchased the recalled products may call 1-888-222-6036 or go to www.rolaids.com for instructions on receiving refunds.

If you have any medical concerns you should see your doctor, the company added in a communiqué.
