The medication is sold under the brand names Equate, CVS Health and Family Wellness.
“There is a remote possibility that infants, who may be more susceptible to a higher potency level of drug, and therefore may be more vulnerable to permanent NSAID-associated renal injury,” according to a news release from the the pharmaceutical company.
