RECALL


In November, Monmouth Junction, NJ, Tris Pharma, Inc. released a recalled on three lots of infant Ibuprofen and they have now announced an expansion to that recall to include three additional lots of Ibuprofen Oral Suspension Drops, USP, 50 mg per 1.25 mL.

The recall is due to some units from these batches were found to contain higher levels of Ibuprofen concentration. The nationwide recall does impact consumers at a retail level.

Infants already susceptible to the adverse effects of ibuprofen may be at a slightly higher risk if they receive medication from an impacted bottle. There is a remote probability that infants, who may be more susceptible to a higher potency level of drug, may be more vulnerable to permanent NSAID-associated renal injury. Some units from these six (6) lots have been found to contain Ibuprofen as high as 10% above the specified limit. Studies have shown that safety issues or toxicity is generally accepted to be a concern in infants at doses in excess of 700% of the recommended dose.1 To date, no serious adverse events have been reported related to this recall.

The product is used as a pain reliever/fever reducer and is packaged in ½ oz. and 1 oz. bottles. This voluntarily recall includes the six (6) lots listed below:
