Infant ibuprofen sold at several major retailers is being recalled because it might be dangerous to babies.
The recall affects medications sold under:
- Family Dollar brands.
The pain relievers are labeled to contain 50 milligrams of ibuprofen, but the company that makes them says the dosage could be higher. The company says there's a "remote possibility" that could lead to permanent kidney injury in infants. The company is recalling the pain meds voluntarily and says it hasn't had any reports of children becoming sick.
The product was packaged in 0.5 oz. bottles and labeled "Infants' Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension." Walmart sells the product under the "Equate" label; CVS sells it under the "CVS Health" label and Family Dollar sells it under the "Family Wellness" label.
