(KWTX) Liquid infant Ibuprofen sold at Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar stores is being recalled because it may have higher than specified concentrations of ibuprofen.

Tris Pharma, Inc., Wednesday announced the voluntary recall of three lots of Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID) 50 mg per 1.25 mL.

“There is a remote possibility that infants, who may be more susceptible to a higher potency level of drug, and therefore may be more vulnerable to permanent NSAID-associated renal injury,” the recall notice said.

“Adverse effects that may be experienced are nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, or more rarely, diarrhea. Tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding are also possible adverse effects,” the notice said.

The company said it hasn’t received any reports of adverse events related to the recalled product.
