Johnson & Johnson Issues Recall of Infant Motrin Formula

Filed September 9th, 2013 Laurie

Johnson & Johnson (J&J) is recalling 200,000 bottles of Motrin Infants formula because they may contain tiny plastic particles.

The recall involves three lots of Motrin Drops Original Berry Flavor, which is used to lower fever and treat aches and pains in children age 2 years old and younger. J&J’s McNeil subsidiary warned that the Motrin may be contaminated with specs of a plastic used in Teflon coating known as PTFE, according to the Associated Press (AP).

The PTFE particles were found in a different product during the manufacturing process. McNeil says it is unclear if the recalled Motrin actually contains the particles, but the company opted to issue the recall because both products contain the same shipment of ibuprofen from a third-party supplier. Ibuprofen is a pain reliever and fever reducer also found in Advil, the AP reported.

The recalled bottles contain the Lot numbers DCB3T01, DDB4R01 and DDB4S01.

J&J is urging consumers to stop using the affected medication and call the company for a full refund at 877-414-7709.
