WASHINGTON (AP) - Johnson & Johnson is recalling 200,000 bottles of Motrin Infants Drops formula due to the risk that they contain tiny particles of plastic.
J&J's McNeil unit says it is unclear if the recalled bottles actually contain the particles, which were found in a different product during the manufacturing process. The company decided to issue the recall because both products contain the same shipment of ibuprofen from a third-party supplier. Ibuprofen is a common pain reliever and fever reducer, also used in Advil.
The company is asking retailers to take the affected products off store shelves.
Friday's announcement is the latest in a series of about 40 product recalls announced by the U.S.-based company since 2009.
The recalled half-ounce bottles can be identified by their lot numbers: DCB3T01, DDB4R01 and DDB4S01
Consumers should stop using the affected medicine and call the company for a refund at 1-877-414-7709.
