Infant liquid ibuprofen recalled

MONMOUTH JUNCTION, NJ — Several lots of infant liquid ibuprofen are being recalled due to the bottles potentially containing higher concentrations of ibuprofen.

Tris Pharma, which is based out of Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, says a voluntary recall covering 0.5-ounce bottles of Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID) 50 MG per 1.25 mL, sold at Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar, has been issued.

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.

Adverse effects can include nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, diarrhea, tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding, the company said.

However, Tris Pharma said in the news release that it has not received any reports of adverse reactions to the medication covered in the recall.

The recalled lots from Walmart are 00717009A, 00717015, and 00717024A. They feature expiration dates of 02/19, 04/19 and 08/19.
