Infant Ibuprofen Recall At Major Retailers



(New York, NY) -- Infant ibuprofen sold at several major retailers is being recalled because it might be dangerous to babies.

The recall affects medications sold under Walmart, CVS, and Family Dollar brands. The pain relievers are labeled to contain 50 milligrams of ibuprofen, but the company that makes them says the dosage could be higher. The company says there's a "remote possibility" that could lead to permanent kidney injury in infants. The company is recalling the pain meds voluntarily and says it hasn't had any reports of children becoming sick.
