Recall Issued for Infant Ibuprofen Sold at Walmart, CVS, Family Dollar


Three types of infant’s ibuprofen have been voluntarily recalled by Tris Pharma.

The lots recalled were all “Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID), 50 mg per 1.25 mL,” the company said in a news release.

It said the recall is due to the “remote possibility that infants, who may be more susceptible to a higher potency level of drug … therefore may be more vulnerable to permanent NSAID-associated renal injury.”

“Adverse effects that may be experienced are nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, or more rarely, diarrhea. Tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding are also possible adverse effects,” the news release said.
