A number of news sources are reporting a recall of 13 million packages of Rolaids by Johnson and Johnson. These include several different kinds of Rolaids Soft Chews.
According to the AP (12/10), “the materials were potentially introduced into the products during the manufacturing process at” this “outside manufacturer.” Accordingly, the company “is suspending production of the Rolaids products in question.” Bloomberg News (12/10, Peterson, Olmos) reports, “While the risk of serious health effects is ‘remote,’ consumers who have purchased Rolaids Extra Strength Softchews, Rolaids Extra Strength plus Gas Softchews, or Rolaids Multi- Symptom plus Anti-Gas Softchews should stop using the products.”
By the way, the New York Times (12/10, B1, Singer) reported on the front page of its Business Day section, that the affected J&J unit, “McNeil Consumer Healthcare, has been troubled by manufacturing deficiencies over the last year, which has led to a series of recalls of some of the country’s most popular over-the-counter brands. A recall in April alone involved about 136 million bottles of liquid children’s Tylenol and other pediatric products.”
