Infants' Ibuprofen recalled due to potentially higher concentrations of Ibuprofen

If you happened to buy a particular brand of infant ibuprofen at CVS, Family Dollar, or Walmart, throw it out or march to the store and demand your money back, as it has been recalled.

Tris said there is a "remote possibility" a higher level of ibuprofen could lead to permanent kidney damage in babies. Other side effects may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tinnitus, headache and stomach bleeding.

The product is used as a pain reliever/fever reducer and was packaged in 0.5 oz. bottles for the recalled lots listed HERE.

08/19, while the recalled lot from Family Dollar is 00717024A with an expiration date of 08/19.

Context: Tris Pharma hasn't received any reports of adverse reactions to the recalled medicine yet, according to Fortune.

At Walmart, the recalled lots are 00717009A (expiry 02/19), 00717015A (expiry 04/19) and 00717024A (expiry 08/19).

If you have one of those, you should check with Tris Pharma to see if it's included in the recall.

Wholesalers and retailers have been ordered to stop selling the product and customers with questions are asked to call Tris Customer Service at 732-940-0358.

Customers experiencing problems with the medication should contact their doctors or health-care providers, according to a statement.

The company said that the recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
