Infants’ Ibuprofen Recalled From Multiple National Retailers
A recall has been issued for store-brand infants' ibuprofen sold at Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar stores across the US.
New Jersey-based pharmaceutical company Tris Pharma announced Wednesday that three lots of its "Infants' Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID)" have been found to possibly contain higher amounts of ibuprofen than shown on the label.
Half-ounce bottles of the liquid ibuprofen are supposed to contain 50 mg per 1.25 mL of the pain-reliever/fever-reducer medication.
According to the ABC report no illnesses or 'adverse events' have been reported, but parents should double check any store brand children's and infants ibuprofen you may have in your house to be sure.
The affected products were sold at Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar under store-brand names:
* Walmart: Equate: Infants' Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension with lot numbers 00717009A, 00717015A, 00717024A with expiration dates of 2/19 and 4/19.
