(NaturalNews) It is starting to seem as though nothing produced by Johnson & Johnson's (J&J) consumer healthcare division is safe for consumers anymore, as yet another recall has been announced that includes four million bottles of Children's Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets in cherry and grape flavors, 800,000 bottles of Junior Strength Motrin Caplets, and 71,000 packages of Rolaids antacid drugs. The company claims that both products are safe for consumers, but that certain unidentified "insufficiencies" have warranted a recall at the wholesale and retail levels.

According to a J&J spokeswoman, the company identified problems with the development and manufacturing process of the drugs in question that were significant enough to initiate the recall. But the company refused to identify what these specific problems actually were, while simultaneously insisting that they are still safe and that consumers are not required to do anything in response to the recall.

A Reuters report indicates that at least some of the drugs involved in the recall were produced by an unidentified "third party", which likely means they came from production facilities overseas. In fact, the report itself was released out of Bangalore, India, so this may have been the original source of contamination. Other reports state that the Benadryl and Motrin were produced in the U.S.

McNeil Consumer Healthcare, the division of J&J that produces the drugs in question, did not issue an official press release for the current recall because it insists that the products still meet quality standards, despite the recall. It instead posted an announcement on its website that the products will simply be removed from retail and wholesale vendors.

Earlier in the year, NaturalNews covered how McNeil was exposed for knowingly selling the tainted products involved in the first recall after discovering they were contaminated (https://www.naturalnews.com/028732_Tylenol_re...). Since that time, the Pennsylvania production facility where the tainted drugs were being produced has been shut down in order to address safety problems.
