A recall has been issued for infant ibuprofen sold by CVS, Family Dollar and Walmart, Tris Pharma said this week.

Adverse effects include nausea, vomiting and stomach bleeding.

Tris Pharma officials said they have not received any reports of adverse events related to the product lots that are subjected to the recall.

It was not clear from the public statement exactly how or when Tris Pharma discovered the problem, or why it came about.

The affected products contain expiration dates of February, April or August 2019 at Walmart and August 2019 at CVS and Family Dollar.

Ibuprofen is an over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) frequently used to relieve pain that is associated with headaches, dental pain, menstrual cramps, muscle aches and arthritis.

The recall affects bottles with national drug codes 49035-125-23, 59779-925-23 and 55319-250-23.

CVS Pharmacy: The expiration date includes 08/19.

The drugs are sold under the names Family Wellness, Equate, and CVS Health, according to the company. And in Family Dollar, the recalled lot is 00717024A (expiry 08/19).

So far, officials say no issues have been reported from the recalled products.

The company said some infants could be at risk of injuries to their renal system.

However, Tris Pharma is urging consumers who are experiencing ill health effects after using the drug to contact their physician or healthcare provider.
