Motrin Infants’ Drops Recall by Johnson & Johnson

Today Johnson & Johnson issued a recall for 200,000 bottles of Motrin Infants’ Drops due to a risk that they may contain tiny particles of plastic (may be contaminated with specs of PTFE, a plastic also used in Teflon coating). No illness or injuries have been reported but “McNeil says it’s unclear if the recalled bottles actually contain the particles, which were found in a different product during the manufacturing process. The company decided to issue the recall because both products contain the same shipment of ibuprofen from a third-party supplier. Ibuprofen is a common pain reliever and fever reducer, also used in Advil.” The affected Motrin are half ounce bottles of original berry flavored drops. 

Consumers should stop using the affected medicine and call the company for a refund at 1-877-414-7709.
