Last week, a nationwide recall was issued for three lots of infant ibuprofen. The medication was sold at major retailers, including Walmart and CVS. Tris Pharma Inc., the company who produces the recalled medication, says that some lots of the product were found to have higher concentrations of ibuprofen. They say this could cause renal failure in susceptible infants.
“Adverse effects that may be experienced are nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, or more rarely, diarrhea. Tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding are also possible adverse effects,” the company said in a statement.
At the Simpson Law Group, we recognize that this is a mistake that could harm many children, but it is not uncommon.

If you need a San Diego product liability attorney, you can count on us to fight for the compensation you deserve.
When we talk about faulty products, there are many ways we can be harmed, but they boil down to three areas:
1. The product is poorly designed and this design can end up causing harm.
2. The product was damaged in the manufacturing process and was altered from the original design, potentially making it harmful.
3. Labeling problems mislead or cause people to misuse the product. This can include hazard warnings, dosages on medications, food ingredients, and more.
We see many of the major product recalls on the news at night. Sometimes there is a string of vehicle fires due to a faulty ignition switch. Other times it is a toy that is contaminated with something harmful to children. We know this – there are many more recalls than people know about. It is the recalls you do not hear about that could affect you the most because you are not on the lookout for them. If we take a look at the government recall site, we can see some major concerns right away:
