A recall has been issued for infant ibuprofen sold by CVS, Family Dollar and Walmart, Tris Pharma said this week. If ingested, children could experience nausea, vomiting, headaches, gastrointestinal bleeding.
The over-the-counter liquid pain reliever and fever reducer is meant for infants who are between the ages of 6 months and 23 months old.
The affected products were sold at several Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar stores across the country.
The three lots of the medicine may have higher concentrations of ibuprofen than the 50 milligrams per 1.25 milliliters that it advertises.
