RECALL ALERT: Infant ibuprofen products

NBC – A New Jersey pharmaceutical company has recalled three lots of infant ibuprofen product over concerns that there may be a higher concentration of the painkiller than stated.

Tris Pharma is recalling three lots of its infant liquid ibuprofen sold at Wal-Mart, CVS and Family Dollar Stores

The products affected are sold under brand names, ‘Equate Infants’ ibuprofen concentrated oral suspension, ‘CVS Health Infants’ ibuprofen concentrated oral suspension and ‘Family Wellness Infants’ ibuprofen concentrated oral suspension.

The company says the medicine might have “potentially higher concentrations of ibuprofen.”

The company also says there is a slight possibility that a higher potency could cause infants to develop permanent renal or kidney injuries.

Babies may experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tinnitus, headaches and other gastrointestinal problems.

So far there haven’t been any reports of customers experiencing problems.
