(Newser) – Johnson & Johnson yesterday recalled several types of Rolaids antacids in the US because of reports of metal and wood particles in the products. The voluntary recall comes less than a month after the company issued a voluntary recall of Rolaids Extra Strength softchews. This time around, recalled products include those softchews, plus Rolaids Extra Strength plus Gas Softchews and Rolaids Multi-Symptom plus Anti-Gas Softchews. The company says the materials were potentially introduced into the products during the manufacturing process at an outside manufacturer.
