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.
