Baby Medicine Recalled After Plastic Pieces Found

    About 200,000 bottles of concentrated Motrin Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor are being voluntarily recalled after a batch of the medication was found to have tiny plastic pieces inside.

    About 200,000 bottles of baby medicine are being recalled after tiny plastic particles were found in a batch during manufacturing, officials announced Friday.

    Consumers that have select bottles of concentrated Motrin Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor are asked to throw away the medication.

    Retailers have been asked to stop selling the product.

    The medication was sold in the U.S. in 1/2-fl oz bottles with UPC code 300450524157. The lot numbers are DCB3T01, DDB4R01 and DDB4S01.

    McNeil Consumer Healthcare said it is recalling the medicine out of an abundance of caution after plastic particles the size of a poppy seed were found in a product lot. That lot was not released to the market, the company said.

    But because of that contamination, three lots of medication using the same batch of active ingredient are being recalled.

    “The potential for adverse medical events related to the reason for this recall is not likely,” the company said in a news release.

    Not included in the recall are Concentrated Infants’ Motrin Drops Dye-Free Berry Flavor 1 fl oz, Children’s or Adult Motrin products.
