(12/6/2018) - A drug maker based in New Jersey is recalling three lots of infant ibuprofen sold as a concentrated oral suspension at three nationwide retailers.

Tris Pharma announced the recall on Thursday involving CVS store brand, Equate brand sold at Walmart and Family Wellness brand sold at Family Dollar.

The three lots of the medicine may have higher concentrations of ibuprofen than the 50 milligrams per 1.25 milliliters that it advertises. As a result, there is a remote possibility infants may suffer renal system damage.

Symptoms of the illness potentially caused by receiving too much ibuprofen include nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain and rarely diarrhea, according to Tris Pharma. Tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding are also possible.

As of Thursday, the manufacturer was not aware of any adverse reactions or illnesses related to the recalled medicine.

Anyone with the affected infant's ibuprofen can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund or they should discard it. Call 732-940-0358 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for more information.
