Recall Alert: Infant Ibuprofen

Recall Alert: Infant Ibuprofen

Sadly, it's time to discuss another potentially hazardous product on the market. A recall has been issued for liquid infant Ibuprofen that is sold at Walmart, CVS, and Family Dollar Brands. Tris Pharma has voluntarily recalled these irregular drugs due to a high concentration of Ibuprofen.

At Child Safety Store, we aim to keep parents informed of any possible dangers that could harm their little ones. As we did with the Nitro 8 Electric Skateboard and the UberScientific Uber Numb Cream, we’re signal-boosting this important product recall alert.

Why Are These Lots of Infant Ibuprofen Being Recalled?

As mentioned above, the recalled lots of Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension may potentially contain higher concentrations of Ibuprofen. According to the FDA, there is a remote possibility that infants could therefore be vulnerable to permanent NSAID-associated renal injury. Infants tend to be more susceptible to higher potency of the drug, and therefore may be at greater risk.

Some of the adverse effects of using this medication may include:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • epigastric pain
  • diarrhea
  • tinnitus
  • headaches
  • gastrointestinal bleeding

If your child experiences any of these side effects, don’t hesitate to seek medical help. For more information about this infant Ibuprofen recall, visit the FDA’s official website
