Johnson & Johnson announced another product recall, this one involving Children's Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets, Junior Strength Motrin Caplets, and Extra Strength Rolaids softchews, the Associated Press reported.

The New Brunswick, N.J.-based company recalled 4 million packages of cherry and grape Benadryl Fastmelt tablets, 800,000 Motrin caplets, and 71,000 caplets of Extra Strength Rolaids. The Rolaids softchews were recalled because some consumers complained the product had an unusual texture that Johnson & Johnson traced to crystallized sugar.

The company said its latest recall is at the wholesale and retail level, but the medications still work and consumers can still use them.

Johnson & Johnson issued the recall after it reviewed its manufacturing process in the wake of a series of product recalls during the past year that involved tens of millions of bottles of Tylenol, Motrin, and other nonprescription drugs. The company said it found unspecified problems related to Benadryl and Motrin products.
