McNeil recalls Rolaids SoftchewsMcNeil Consumer Healthcare announced a voluntary recall of all lots of Rolaids Extra Strength Softchews, Rolaids Extra Strength plus Gas Softchews, and Rolaids Multi-Symptom plus Anti-Gas Softchews. This recall has been initiated following consumer reports of foreign materials in the products, including metal and wood particles. McNeil'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, consumers who have purchased these recalled products are advised to stop using them immediately.
