Certain infant ibuprofen pulled from CVS Pharmacy, Dollar Tree, Walmart shelves Tris Pharma logo

Several grocers and pharmacy chains are pulling infants' ibuprofen Thursday.


New Jersey-based Tris Pharma is voluntarily pulling three lots of liquid ibuprofen because the drug may be more potent than advertised. The pain reliever was sold under Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar house brands.

Officially, the affected medication is "Infants Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (USAID) 50 mg per 1.25 mL."



The company says there is a "remote possibility" infants could have adverse reactions to the ibuprofen, including headaches, nausea, vomiting and what's called epigastric pain, or discomfort right below the ribs. In more serious cases, tinnitus, diarrhea and gastrointestinal bleeding are possible as well.

If you have questions, call Tris Customer Service at 732-940-0358.
