Nationwide recall issued for infant ibuprofen sold at Walmart, CVS, Family Dollar

(WSVN) - Tris Pharma has voluntarily recalled three brands of infant ibuprofen, after finding the products may possibly contain higher concentrations of the drug than advertised.

The products affected include 0.5-ounce bottles of Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension under the brand names Family Wellness, CVS Health and Equate.

According to the company’s press release, infants who may be more susceptible to a higher potency level of the drug may be more vulnerable to permanent NSAID-associated renal injury.

Other side effect may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, or more rarely, diarrhea.

The medications, used as a pain reliever/fever reducer, were distributed all over the U.S.
