Infant Ibuprofen Sold at Walmart, CVS Recalled Over Dosage Concerns

A drug maker based in New Jersey is recalling three lots of infant ibuprofen sold as a concentrated oral suspension at three nationwide retailers.

The recalled product was packaged in 0.5 oz. bottles and labeled "Infants' Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension" (see product image below).

Officials have issued a recall for infant ibuprofen.

Tris Pharma says the medication was sold under Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar brands.

Tris Pharma says the concentrations may be too high and infants may be "more vulnerable to permanent NSAIDs -associated renal injury".

However, these lipids also maintain body fluid pressure so kidneys can filter waste from the body and help protect the stomach lining from stomach acid. So far no adverse events related to the recalled ibuprofen have been reported, according to Tris Pharma's recall announcement.

The recalled products from Walmart have lot numbers 00717009A, 00717015A, 00717024A with February 2019, April 2019 and August 2019 expiration dates.

At CVS, the recalled lot is 00717024A (expires 08/19).

Consumers concerned about a product they may have recently purchased can call Tris Pharma's customer service number at 732-940-0358.
