CNN reports that Johnson and Johnson has issued yet another recall.  Instead of making a public statement, as it did with its previous recalls earlier this year, the company quietly issued a statement on its website.  As a result of this latest recall, almost 5 million packages of Benadryl, Motrin, and Rolaids are being pulled off the shelves.  Specifically, the affected products include 4 million packages of Children’s Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets in cherry and grape flavors, nearly 800,000 packages of Junior Strength Motrin caplets, and 71,000 packages of Rolaid antacids in cherry flavor soft chew.

Unlike the recalls earlier this year, the Company claims that the products do not fail to meet consumer standards, but are only being pulled because of manufacturing “insufficiencies.” J & J fails to identify the specific manufacturing issue. As for the Rolaids, the company issued the recall only after several consumer complaints of an “uncharacteristic consistency or texture traced to crystallized sugar in the product.”

Although the company states that this is only a wholesale and retail recall and that consumers can continue to use the products, use your best judgment and proceed with caution.
