Motrin Infants Formula Recalled
WebMD News from HealthDay

Sept. 9, 2013 -- About 200,000 bottles of Motrin Infants formula, which is used to treat fever and aches and pains in children 2 years old and younger, are being recalled because they may contain tiny plastic particles, Johnson & Johnson says.

The recall covers three lots of Motrin Infants' Drops Original Berry Flavor. The lot numbers of the recalled half-ounce bottles are DCB3T01, DDB4R01 and DDB4S01, the Associated Press reported.

The recalled products may contain tiny bits of PTFE, which is a plastic used in Teflon coatings. It's unclear if the recalled bottles actually contain the particles, which were found in a different product during the manufacturing process, J&J's McNeil unit said, the news service reported.

Both products contain the same shipment of ibuprofen from a third-party supplier, the company explained.

"From our perspective, during the manufacturing process at the third party supplier, that's when the particles got into the ibuprofen," McNeil Vice President Ed Kuffner told the AP. He would not identify the supplier that made the ibuprofen.

No illnesses or injuries associated with the affected medicine have been reported to date, according to the company.

McNeil has told retailers to remove the recalled lots from their shelves. Consumers should stop using the products and call McNeil for a refund at 1-877-414-7709, the AP reported.
