Parents are being warned of a new recall over a children’s product that could potentially cause extreme sickness, specifically in infants. On Thursday, an announcement was made that a type of children’s medicine that is sold at thousands of stores around the United States is being recalled.
According to ABC, Tris Pharma is issuing a voluntary recall of their Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension. The liquid ibuprofen can be found at Walmart, CVS, and Family Dollar.
The recall was issued when reports emerged that the particular brand of ibuprofen has higher concentrations of the medicine, causing it to be potentially dangerous.
Ibuprofen is typically used as a product for pain relief or to reduce fevers. However, it is now unsafe to take. According to the recall, infants could potentially be vulnerable to a permanent NSAID related injury.
Children who take this recalled drug could potentially see dangerous side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or epigastric pain. Additionally, headaches, gastrointestinal bleeding, and tinnitus are also possible side effects.
The official names of the products recalled:
Equate: Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID), 50 mg per 1.25 mL, 0.5 oz. bottle.
CVS Health: Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID), 50 mg per 1.25 mL, 0.5 oz. bottle.
Family Wellness: Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID), 50 mg per 1.25 mL, 0.5 oz. bottle.
If you have any of these products, please return or throw them out ASAP. If you have friends or family with small children, please share this with them as well.
