article imageMotrin Infants Drops recalled

By Tim Sandle     Sep 10, 2013 in Health
Johnson & Johnson are recalling three lots, approximately 200,000 bottles, of Concentrated Motrin Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 0.5 fl. Oz. bottles distributed in the United States.
The medicine being recalled has been made by McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC Inc. The reason for the recall is due to the risk that the medicine contains tiny plastic particles (around the size of a poppy seed). A review indicates 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 0.5 fl. oz. Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory medication often used as a pain reliever and fever reducer.
The International Business Times notes that McNeil is asking retailers to remove the affected lots from store shelves, and is asking consumers to stop using and dispose of any product they may have that is included in this recall.
Also in the news relating to the recall of medicines, Avella Specialty Pharmacy has recalled two compounded sterile medications, Bevacizumab 1.25 mg/0.05 mL PF and Vancomycin PF (BSS) 1%. The recall is a result of concerns of contamination concerns with the specialty pharmacy’s independent testing laboratory, Front Range Laboratories.
