The affected products were sold at Walmart, CVS and at Family Dollar.

Infant ibuprofen sold at several national retailers has been recalled over concerns that it might contain a higher concentration of the pain reliever.

Tris Pharma, Inc. issued a recall on three different types of ibuprofen due to worries that the product might contain a higher dosage than stated on the package. Tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding are also possible. The recalled lots are sold in Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar. And in Family Dollar, the recalled lot is 00717024A (expiry 08/19).

Lot numbers include 00717009A, 00717015A and 00717024A. As a result, there is a remote possibility infants may suffer renal system damage.

So far the recall does not say which states received the product.
