Benadryl, Motrin, Rolaids Recall
Children's Benadryl, Junior Strength Motrin, Rolaids Recalled
McNeil Consumer Healthcare, part of Johnson & Johnson (J&J), is recalling over 5 million packages of Children's Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt tablets, Junior Strength Motrin pain-relief caplets due to a "manufacturing process insufficiencies". Additionally, J&J recalled over 71,000 packages of Rolaids antacid softchews following customer complaints over unexpected texture and consistency (in other words, the Rolaids softchews looked anf felt weird).
The recalled Benadryl, Motrin and Rolaids were manufactured at J&J's Fort Washington, PA plant, which also manufactured the widely-recalled Tylenol products.

According to Johnson & Johnson, this is not a consumer-level recall, and nothing is required from customers: the safety of the affected products is not compromised.
J&J said the recalls, like many of the earlier ones, involved products made at its plant in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania. The facility was closed earlier this year to fix quality-control lapses, including unsanitary conditions.
