Baby Ibuprofen Has Been Recalled From Walmart, CVS And Family Dollar
Check those medicine cabinets! A New Jersey based pharmaceutical company issued a recall of its infants’ liquid ibuprofen after discovering higher concentrations of medication in some packages.
#TrisPharma said it voluntarily recalled three lots of “Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID)” because it possibly contained higher amounts of ibuprofen than advertised, ABC News reports.
“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,” the statement said. “Adverse effects that may be experienced are nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, or more rarely, diarrhea. Tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding are also possible adverse effects.” The recalled drugs were sold at #Walmart, #CVS and #FamilyDollar locations under store-brand names, Tris Pharma said.
“To date, Tris Pharma Inc. has not received any reports of adverse events related to the lots of product that are the subject of this recall,” the company added.
Officials did not list the distributor’s name, but they said they sent out an “urgent recall notice” and are arranging for the return of the recalled product.
There have also been recalls for raw beef products, romaine lettuce and raw ground turkey.
