Huge Infant Motrin Recall: Get All the Details!

Before you give your baby Infant Motrin, be sure that the bottle in your medicine cabinet isn't part of the latest recall

The makers of Motrin Infants’ Drops, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, are voluntarily recalling approximately 200,000 bottles of Original Berry Flavor sold in the United States because of a risk that they may contain tiny plastic particles, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The plastic pieces, about the size of a poppy seed, were found in a lot of the pain reliever/fever reducer during manufacturing and it was not released to the market. However, investigators determined the particles originated from a shipment of the active ingredient, ibuprofen, and have recalled the lots that had already hit the market containing this same batch of active ingredient.

The recalled bottles are the ½ fl oz size, and have the following lot numbers: DCB3T01, DDB4R01, DDB4S01. UPC code for all is 300450524157. If you find the recalled product in your home, stop using it and throw it away. Consumers who would like a refund should call 1-877-414-7709.
