Infant ibuprofen recall: Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar lots impacted (Source usatoday.com)
Infant ibuprofen destined to be sold at several national retailers might contain a higher concentration of ibuprofen, leading to potential risks in infants, according to a Wednesday voluntary recall notice.
New Jersey-based Tris Pharma, Inc. said lots sold under Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar brands are impacted by the recall. The products were labeled to contain 50 mg of Ibuprofen per 1.25 mL.
The company said there is a “remote possibility” the increased amount of ibuprofen could lead to permanent kidney injury in infants. Other adverse effects could include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain and diarrhea, along with tinnitus, headaches or possible stomach bleeding.
To date, the company says it has not received any reports of adverse events related to the recall.
