Recall of Infants’ Motrin

by Elizabeth Davis on September 9, 2013 at 11:09 am

Manufacturer McNeil Consumer Healthcare is recalling three lots of their Infants’ Motrin (ibuprofen). The recall includes only the Concentrated Motrin Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz bottles, and does not include the dye-free version, or any other children’s or adult Motrin products.

Plastic particles were found in a lot that was not released for sale, but because the particles were determined to have originated from a shipment of the active ingredient, ibuprofen, all lots made with the same batch of ibuprofen are being recalled.

The lots being recalled are DCB3T01, DCB4R01, and DCB4S01, with UPC code 300450524157. If your packaging label has a different UPC or manufacturer, it is not affected by the recall.

The recall is at the retail level, meaning the manufacturer is asking stores to remove the affected products from their shelves, and asking consumers to stop using and discard any products they still have that are affected by the recall.
