Risk of Permanent Kidney Damage Causes Voluntary Product Recall of Liquid Infant Ibuprofen
A voluntary product recall for three liquid infant ibuprofens sold at Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar has been issued because of the possibility that they could cause permanent kidney damage. The issue with these three lots of infant’s Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension stems from potentially higher concentrations of ibuprofen. New Jersey based pharmaceutical manufacturer Tris Pharma Inc. stated there is a “remote possibility” infants, who are more susceptible to a higher potency level of the drug, may be more vulnerable to permanent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)-associated kidney injury. Other potential reactions include headache, abdominal pain or diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, gastrointestinal bleeding and tinnitus. There are no reports of children sickened by the recalled products but parents and caretakers should return or dispose of any of the liquid infant ibuprofens on the recall list.
