Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. (McNeil), has voluntarily recalled three lots of Concentrated MOTRIN® Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz bottles from wholesalers and retail stores in the United States. 

After these three lots were shipped to retailers, tiny plastic particles (approximately 1 mm in size or about the size of a poppy seed) were spotted in a different product lot during manufacturing. This lot was not released to the market.

An investigation discovered that the particles originated in a shipment from a third party supplier of ibuprofen, the active ingredient in Concentrated MOTRIN® Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz.

From the manufacturer:

‘Out of an abundance of caution, McNeil is voluntarily recalling the three lots released to the market made with the same batch of active ingredient. McNeil has worked with the third party to ensure that corrective measures are currently in place and are effective.

The potential for adverse medical events related to the reason for this recall is not likely. Concentrated Infants’ MOTRIN® Drops Dye-Free Berry Flavor 1 fl oz is not included in this recall. Children’s and Adult MOTRIN® products also are not included in the recall.
