A recall on CVS and Equate-brand infant Ibuprofen was expanded Wednesday.

A recall of liquid infant ibuprofen sold at Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar over concerns of potentially unsafe higher-concentration medicine has been expanded to include additional batches. The recalled product was packaged in 0.5 ounces and 1-ounce bottles and labeled "Infants' Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension".

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

CVS Health: Infants' Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP, 50 mg per 1.25 mL, in 1.0 oz. bottle with an expiration date of February 2019 and a lot number 00717006A.

At CVS, the medicine is sold under the CVS Health label.

The recall was due to concerns that the medication had potentially higher concentrations of ibuprofen than stated on the label.
