McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. is voluntarily recalling all several types of ROLAIDS after consumer reports determined metal and wood particles were detected in the product.

The company is recalling lots of ROLAIDS® Extra Strength Softchews, ROLAIDS® Extra Strength plus Gas Softchews, and ROLAIDS® Multi-Symptom plus Anti-Gas Softchews (full product details below) distributed in the United States.

"The company's investigation has determined that the materials were potentially introduced into the product during the manufacturing process at a third party manufacturer," the company wrote on its website. "While the risk of serious adverse health consequences is remote, McNeil Consumer Healthcare advises consumers who have purchased these recalled products to discontinue use."

The company added it has decided to suspend the production of the recalled products until the issue is resolved.

Consumers who purchased product included in this recall should contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare, either at www.rolaids.com or by calling 1-888-222-6036 (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time, and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time) for instructions about receiving a refund.
