Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Infants' Ibuprofen

 

Drug manufacturer Tris Pharma issued a voluntary recall of children's ibuprofen being sold at Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar.

Reports say the products may contain higher concentrations of ibuprofen than written on the box.

Children who digest too much of the drug can suffer from nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, or diarrhea as well as tinnitus, headache, and gastrointestinal bleeding.

While no official complaints have been made about any medical incidents, the company has released the specific products being recalled:
