Although the company is describing harm as "not likely," a recall of infant Motrin remains in effect, reported CNN on October 7. The recall occurred as a result of possible contamination from plastic particles.
Johnson & Johnson has voluntarily pulled 200,000 bottles off the shelves, and the company emphasizes that the recall continues. The corporation initially announced the recall in September.
The specific product is called Concentrated Motrin Infants' Drops Original Berry Flavor, and McNeil Consumer Healthcare, which manufactures the drops, pinpointed three lot numbers: DCB3T01, DDB4R01 and DDB4S01.
However, trying to do damage control, the company issued a statement on October 6 saying "The potential for adverse medical events related to the reason for this recall is not likely."
The discovery of tiny plastic particles occurred in a different lot during manufacturing. Those particles were linked to a shipment of ibuprofen from a supplier, according to McNeil Consumer Healthcare.
Although the recalled items might not actually contain plastic, the company noted that the Infant Motrin was made with the same lot of ibuprofen as another product which did test positive for PTFE, reported WebPro News on October 7.
