Tris Pharma announced a voluntary nationwide recall of 3 lots of Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, 50mg/1.25mL as the products may contain higher concentrations of ibuprofen.

Ingesting nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) at a higher potency level may cause nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, diarrhea, tinnitus, headache, and even gastrointestinal bleeding; pediatric patients are also at greater risk of developing NSAID-associated renal injury.
