Infant liquid ibuprofen being recalled

(NBC) — Tris Pharma is recalling three lots of infant liquid ibuprofen sold at Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar Stores.

The products affected are sold under brand names, ‘Equate Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, ‘CVS Health Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension and ‘Family Wellness Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension.

The company says the affected lots may have a quote “potentially higher concentrations of ibuprofen.”

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

Babies may also experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tinnitus, headaches, and other gastrointestinal problems.

Tris pharma says it has not received any reports of customers experiencing adverse effects from the products. The company says customers who have experienced health issues should contact a doctor or health care professional.
