Recalls

Infants' ibuprofen sold at Walmart, CVS, and Family Dollar recalled

WASHINGTON (WHTM) - Certain lots of store-brand infants' ibuprofen sold at Walmart, CVS, and Family Dollar have been recalled because the medicine may have a higher drug potency.

The Food and Drug Administration said there is a remote possibility that infants, who may be more susceptible to higher concentrations of ibuprofen, and therefore may be more vulnerable to permanent NSAID-associated renal injury.

Adverse effects may include nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, or more rarely, diarrhea. Tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding are also possible.

There have been no reports of adverse effects related to the recalled medicine. People should contact their healthcare provider if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking the medicine.
