Infants' Ibuprofen recall

Infant ibuprofen recalled from Walmart, CVS, Family Dollar stores

The recall products are labeled to contain 50 mg of Ibuprofen per 1.25 mL.

Tris Pharma Inc. issued a voluntary recall for three lots of liquid infant ibuprofen sold at Family Dollar, Walmart and CVS, the company announced on Thursday.

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

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.
