|While watching our Facebook page this morning, it was noticed that many are posting graphics on a recall of Infant Motrin Drops. To alleviate any misinformation posted from sites other than those reputable, we offer this information from the manufacturer.|
In a press release from McNeil Consumer Healthcare, details of the recall are as follows.
You may have noticed that Concentrated MOTRIN® Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz bottles are not readily available where you shop. This is because the makers of the product, McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. (McNeil), has voluntarily recalled three lots of Concentrated MOTRIN® Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz bottles from wholesalers and retail stores in the United States. McNeil is asking consumers to stop using and dispose of any product they may have that is included in this recall.
The product in question is:
Concentrated MOTRIN® Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz bottles
After releasing these three lots of Concentrated MOTRIN® Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz into the market, tiny plastic particles (approximately 1 mm in size or about the size of a poppy seed) were identified in a different product lot during manufacturing. This lot was not released to the market. It was determined that the particles originated in a shipment from a third party supplier of ibuprofen, the active ingredient in Concentrated MOTRIN® Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz. Out of an abundance of caution, McNeil is voluntarily recalling the three lots released to the market made with the same batch of active ingredient. McNeil has worked with the third party to ensure that corrective measures are currently in place and are effective. The potential for adverse medical events related to the reason for this recall is not likely. Concentrated Infants’ MOTRIN® Drops Dye-Free Berry Flavor 1 fl oz is not included in this recall. Children’s and Adult MOTRIN® products also are not included in the recall.
