TUMS Peppermint Regular Strength (500mg) tablets, packages of three rolls of 12 tablets
GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare ULC is recalling one lot of TUMS Peppermint Regular Strength tablets after some tablets were found to contain fragments of fibreglass and other material, including paper and aluminum foil. The product is sold in a package of three rolls containing 12 tablets each, and was distributed across Canada starting on October 25, 2022.
