Baby ibuprofen sold at Walmart and CVS recalled by manufacturer

The recalled lots of the product have been found to potentially have higher concentrations of ibuprofen.

The recalled medications were 0.5 ounce bottles sold nationwide at CVS, Family Dollar and Walmart stores. Tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding are also possible adverse effects.

The Equate ibuprofen packages sold at Walmart have an national drug code of 49035-125-23 and include lot numbers 00717009A with an expiration date of February 2019, 00717015A with an expiration date of April 2019 and 00717024A with an expiration date of August 2019. At CVS, the recalled lot is 00717024A (expiry 08/19).

According to the label, the ibuprofen - meant to be used as a pain reliever or fever reducer - contained 50 mg per 1.25 mL.

The infant ibuprofen product recalled from Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar over concerns about the painkiller's potency.
