TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Several lots of liquid baby ibuprofen sold at Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar has been recalled due to the potential of overdose.

Tris Pharma, Inc. has voluntarily recalled three lots of Infants' Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID) 50 mg per 1.25 mL.

The recalled product has been found to potentially have higher concentrations of ibuprofen. The company is warning that there is a possibility that infants may be more vulnerable to permanent NSAID-associated kidney injury because they are more susceptible to a higher potency level of the drug.

Side effects are nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, or more rarely, diarrhea. Tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding are also possible adverse effects. To this date, Tris Pharma, Inc. has not received any reports of adverse events related to the lots of product that are the subject of this recall.

The product is used as a pain reliever for infants and is packaged in 0.5 oz. bottles listed below:
