Woman Speechless After Opening Pills From Walmart, Immediately Dials 911

A woman popped open a brand new container of antacids, and what she saw was enough to give her more heartburn. Instead of the product she recently bought at a local Wal-Mart, the bottle was filled with unidentified green pills and broken bits of antacid from another company.

Amber Johnson of Mustang, Oklahoma purchased the over-the-counter meds at her local Wal-Mart, and called the company when she saw was inside. Instead of antacid pills, a bunch of small, green tablets spilled out.

Johnson, luckily, knew what antacids are supposed to look like; but if someone who had never purchased antacids before opened it, they might have popped the wrong pill. This could be dangerous for some people, such as children, pregnant women, or people already on medications that might interact with the green pills.

In addition to the green pills, Johnson found some crushed antacids that read 'Tums' on the pieces. The problem is, Johnson bought the Wal-Mart generic brand of antacids, which are made at an entirely different manufacturing plant.

"[There was] nothing wrong the box or bottle, completely sealed, the glue’s sealed, the silver foil on the top was still sealed, just like any of the previous bottles I’ve purchased before,” said Johnson.

The manufacturer seemed as baffled as she was about her findings. “It doesn’t make sense that a pill that’s not made at that plant can be put in the bottle unless it was brought in by some outside source, otherwise I have no idea … A joke? A prank?” she told KFOR. “I know that sometimes medicines change manufacturers and they may change shapes or forms, I’m not sure some people would think before they put it in their mouth before taking it, especially if they’re not feeling well."

Wal-Mart removed all the pill bottles from the shelves. They're investigating the incident and trying to find the cause.
