The three recalled lots of Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID) 50 mg per 1.25 mL may have concentrations of ibuprofen that are too high and therefore could be risky, according to the recall announcement.

The New Jersey-based pharmaceutical company said its product labeled "Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID) 50 mg per 1.25 mL" might have a higher concentration of ibuprofen than advertised. It could be potentially unsafe for babies and could cause nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain or diarrhea. It was sold in lots that went to some Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar stores.

Tris said there is a "remote possibility" a higher level of ibuprofen could lead to permanent kidney damage in babies. Tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding are also possible adverse effects. Tris Pharma did not specify which states might have received the products.

The recalled lots from Walmart are 00717009A, 00717015, and 00717024A.
