McNeil Consumer Healthcare is voluntarily recalling approximately 200,000 1/2 fl. oz. bottles of Concentrated MOTRIN Infants' Drops, Original Berry Flavor.

This recall comes after tiny plastic particles were discovered in a shipment from a third party supplier of ibuprofen, the active ingredient in the recalled MOTRIN Infants' Drops.

Out of an abundance of caution, McNeil is voluntarily recalling the three lots released to the market made with the same batch of active ingredient.

The bottles of MOTRIN Infants' Drops, Original Berry Flavor affected by this recall will bear a lot number of DCB3T01, DDB4R01 or DDB4S01, as well as a UPC code of 300450524157.

McNeil is asking retailers to remove the affected lots from store shelves, and is asking consumers to stop using and dispose of any product they may have that is included in this recall.

This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
