FDA Announces Voluntary Recall of Infant Motrin

Last week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a voluntary recall of Motrin Infants’ Drops that were distributed in the United States.

Roughly 200,000 bottles have been voluntarily recalled by McNeil Consumer Healthcare, the company that manufactures Concentrated Motrin Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz bottles.

The recall was prompted after plastic pieces were found in them medication. The company claimed that these particles came from a third-party supplier that makes ibuprofen. Only three lots are affected by this recall: DCB3T01, DDB4R01, and DDB4S01. The NDC number on the bottles is 50580-100-18.

The manufacturer released a statement on its website that it the recall is an extreme safety precaution because the “health and well-being of consumers is our company’s number one priority.” They are asking that all retail stores pull the affected lots from store shelves, and for consumers to immediately stop using them.

To date, no injuries have been reported from the infant Motrin recall. If a loved one suffered injury because of infant Motrin, contact Lopez McHugh for a free consultation.
