J&J recalls Infant Motrin due to plastic specks

WASHINGTON — Johnson & Johnson is recalling 200,000 bottles of Motrin Infants formula due to the risk that they contain tiny plastic particles.

J&J’s McNeil unit said Friday that the recall affects three lots of its popular Motrin Drops Original Berry Flavor, which is used to lower fever and treat aches and pains in children 2 years old and younger.

McNeil says it’s unclear if the recalled bottles actually contain the particles, which were found in a different product during the manufacturing process.

The recalled bottles have lot numbers: DCB3T01, DDB4R01, and DDB4S01

McNeil is asking retailers to take the affected products off store shelves. Consumers should stop using the affected medicine and call the company for a refund at 1-877-414-7709.
