The manufacturer, Tris Pharma, Inc. of Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, says this specific liquid medicine could have potentially higher concentrations of ibuprofen than listed.

Babies may also experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tinnitus, headaches and other gastrointestinal problems. According to a release about the recall, Tris Pharma, Inc. has notified that customer and is arranging for the recalled product to be returned.

Several brands of infant liquid ibuprofen are being recalled as they might contain higher - and potentially more risky - concentrations of the drug. And in Family Dollar, the recalled lot is 00717024A (expiry 08/19).

Lot numbers include 00717009A, 00717015A and 00717024A. It was sold in lots that went to some Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar stores.

The infant ibuprofen product recalled from Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar over concerns about the painkiller's potency.

The company said some infants could be at risk of injuries to their renal system.

However, the company didn't specify which states received the product.

Wholesalers and retailers have been ordered to stop selling the product and customers with questions are asked to call Tris Customer Service at 732-940-0358. Children with signs of adverse reactions should see a health care specialist.
