The products being recalled are Rolaids Extra Strength Softchews, Rolaids Extra Strength plus Gas Softchews, and Rolaids Multi-Symptom plus Anti-Gas Softchews. Some consumers reported finding metal and wood particles in the antacids, which may have been introduced at a third party manufacturer. While McNeil notes that the chances of becoming ill from the products are "remote," they are offering a refund and have discontinued making them.
