After releasing these three lots of Concentrated MOTRIN® Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz into the market, tiny plastic particles (approximately 1 mm in size or about the size of a poppy seed) were identified in a different product lot during manufacturing.

This lot was not released to the market. It was determined 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.

McNeil is recalling the three lots released to the market made with the same batch of active ingredient. Concentrated Infants’ MOTRIN® Drops Dye-Free Berry Flavor 1 fl oz is not included in this recall. Children’s or Adult MOTRIN® products are not included in this recall.
