Infant ibuprofen sold at Walmart, CVS recalled over dosage concerns

Below is information on each of the recalled product's labels.

Tris Pharma, Inc., said its pain-reliever/fever reducer was sold to one customer and then packaged for sale at Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar.

Several lots of infant liquid ibuprofen are being recalled due to the bottles potentially containing higher concentrations of ibuprofen.

Tris Pharma says the concentrations may be too high and infants may be "more vulnerable to permanent NSAIDs -associated renal injury". Other possible adverse effects include tinnitus (ringing in the ears), headaches and stomach bleeding.

The recalled lots from Walmart are 00717009A, 00717015, and 00717024A.
