Several Brands Of Infant Liquid Ibuprofen Have Been Recalled
If you have babies or young kids in the house you need to check your medicine cabinet immediately.
WCVB News Center 5 in Boston is reporting that several brands of infant liquid ibuprofen sold at Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar have been recalled. WCVB says medicine has potentially higher concentrations of the drug than advertised.
According to the report, when you check your medicine cabinet be on the lookout for the brands Equate, CVS Health, and Family Wellness. They are packaged in 0.5-ounce bottles.
WCVB says Tris Pharma has not received reports of adverse events related to medications in the recall.
USA Today says the company claims there is a "remote possibility'' the increased amount of ibuprofen could lead to permanent kidney injury in infants. Other adverse effects could include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain and diarrhea, along with tinnitus, headaches or possible stomach bleeding.
They also say the recall statement does not specify which states received the product.
