FDA announces Product Safety Recall for MOTRIN Infant Drops
Best Syndication News - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that McNeil Consumer Healthcare has voluntarily recalled certain lots of Concentrated MOTRIN Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor. About 200,000 bottles are involved in the recall, but only three lots of the ½ fluid ounce bottles are involved.
The recall was announced when the company discovered 1 mm sized plastic particles in a different product lot that was being manufactured and has not been shipped. McNeil believes that the plastic pieces came from a third party supplier of ibuprofen, which is an ingredient used to make their product. Out of extreme safety measures, McNeil Consumer Healthcare has decided to recall three lots of Concentrated MOTRIN Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor ½ fluid ounce sized bottles, because these lots also used the same batch of ibuprofen.
The only product being recalled is the Concentrated MOTRIN® Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz bottles with NDC 50580-100-18. Only those bottles with the lot numbers of DCB3T01, DDB4R01, DDB4S01 are involved in the recall. The UPC code on the product is 300450524157. All other MOTRIN products have not been recalled and are safe to use.
