Infant Ibuprofen Recalled
Here's some really scary stuff, especially if you are a parent.
According to fox17online.com, Tris Pharma has expanded their recall that happened in November of last year that involved liquid infant ibuprofen. The ibuprofen in question has been sold at Walmart and CVS Pharmacy.
The reason? The ibuprofen might be stronger than it was advertised.
The big problem here is that the stronger ibuprofen could cause permanent renal injury in infants that may have a lower tolerance for the dosage. The manufacturer states that the possibility of such a thing is remote. Tris Pharma says that up to now, there have been no reports of anyone harmed by the ibuprofen.
Reactions to the ibuprofen can include nausea, vomiting, pain or discomfort in the upper abdomen right below the ribs, and in some cases, diarrhea.
