Latest News: Infant Ibuprofen Recalled from Major Retailers

Tris Pharma Inc., a large manufacturer of ibuprofen, voluntarily recalled three lots of its infants’ ibuprofen over fears that it may be too potent for infants.

The product, used as a pain reliever and fever reducer, is being pulled from Wal-Mart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar stores. It is packaged under different names at the retailers, so a full list is included below.

The high potency of the ibuprofen increases an infant’s chance of developing kidney problems and may cause nausea or similar gastrointestinal discomfort.

However, Tris Pharma Inc. says there have been no reports of anyone affected by this batch so far.

Recalled products are:

NDC 49035-125-23 Equate: Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension from Walmart

NDC 59779-925-23 CVS Health: Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension from CVS Pharmacy

NDC 55319-250-23 Family Wellness: Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension from Family Dollar
