The company said in a statement that some units involved in the recall were found to contain Ibuprofen levels as high as 10 percent above the specified limit.

The company, Tris Pharma says that the medicine is sold at Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar Stores nationwide.

The FDA issued an expanded recall of infants' oral ibuprofen solution because it may have potentially higher concentrations of ibuprofen than labeled.

Tris Pharma is now expanding the recall by adding three more lots, which are currently sold at just CVS and Walmart.

The pharmaceutical company first pulled lots of its Infants' Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension from shelves a year ago after batches of the product were found to potentially contain higher concentrations of the drug than what was listed on the label. They are packaged in ½ oz. and 1 oz. bottles.
