According to the company, the makers of the product, McNeil-PPC Inc. has voluntarily recalled three lots of Concentrated Motrin Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fluid ounce 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.
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.
The infant drops being recalled have the lot numbers:
After releasing these three lots 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 the drops.
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.
According to the company, the potential for adverse medical events related to the reason for this recall is not likely.
