Infant ibuprofen recalled from Walmart, CVS, Family Dollar

(WBNG/CBS) — A brand of ibuprofen for infants is being recalled because of an issue that could lead to kidney problems.

Tris Pharma recalled the medicine from Walmart, CVS, and Family Dollar stores across the nation due to high concentrations of the drug.

The company said there is a “remote possibility” that the higher concentration could lead to kidney damage to infants and that it had not received any reports of adverse effects due to the recall.

The recalled products are sold in 0.5 ounces bottles and are labeled “Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension”.

The affected bottles sold at Walmart are under the “Equate” brand and have expiration dates of  February 2019, April 2019, and August 2019. They have a National Drug Code of 49035-125-2 and the lot numbers 00717009A, 00717015A and 00717024A on the label.

Bottles sold at CVS are under the “CVS Health” label and expire in August 2019. They have the NCD number 59779-925-23 and 00717024A lot number.

Family Dollar bottles are labeled “Family Wellness” and have a 55319-250-23 NDC number and lot number 00717024A.
