On December 9, 2010, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a division of McNeil-PPC Inc., announced a voluntary recall all lots of Rolaids Extra Strength Softchews, Rolaids Extra Strength plus Gas Softchews, and Rolaids Multi-symptom plus Anti-gas Softchews.

McNeil is issuing the recall after consumer reports of foreign particles in the chews including wood and metal particles. The company has determined that the particles may have been introduced in the products at a third party manufacturing facility. The company has suspended further manufacturing of the Rolaids Softchews until corrective actions can be taken.

There have been no reports of injuries from these products but McNeil asks that consumers discontinue use of the recalled products. For a full list of products, lot numbers, and further consumer information on this recall go to
