RECALL ALERT: Infant ibuprofen sold at Wal-Mart, CVS and Family Dollar recalled

NBC – A New Jersey pharmaceutical company has recalled three lots of infant ibuprofen product over concerns that there may be a higher concentration of the painkiller than stated.

Tris Pharma is recalling three lots of its infant liquid ibuprofen sold at Wal-Mart, CVS and Family Dollar Stores

The products affected are sold under brand names, ‘Equate Infants’ ibuprofen concentrated oral suspension, ‘CVS Health Infants’ ibuprofen concentrated oral suspension and ‘Family Wellness Infants’ ibuprofen concentrated oral suspension.
