Packaged under the private-label brands of the three major retailers, the label on the recalled product says it contains 50 mg of ibuprofen per 1.25 mL, according to the the New Jersey drugmaker.

Several lots of infant liquid ibuprofen are being recalled due to the bottles potentially containing higher concentrations of ibuprofen.

Tris Pharma said there is a "remote possibility" the increased amount of ibuprofen could lead to permanent kidney injury in infants. Other possible adverse effects include tinnitus (ringing in the ears), headaches and stomach bleeding. The recalled lots are sold in Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar.

So far the recall does not say which states received the product.

Tris Pharma sold the affected lots of Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID) 50 mg per 1.25 mL to one customer, who distributed the lots into the US market.

The National Drug Code numbers on the recalled packages are 49035-125-23 for Walmart, 59779-925-23 for CVS and 55319-250-23 for Family Dollar.

Eastern TIme to 5:00 p.m.
