RECALL ALERT: Baby Ibuprofen could be potentially harmful

MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J. - Parents, we have an urgent recall to tell you about. Certain store brands of Infant Ibuprofen are being pulled off store shelves, so check your medicine cabinets.

The brands were sold at Walmart, CVS, and Family Dollar.

They may contain higher concentrations of the medicine than labeled, so they could be potentially harmful to infants.

As of now, we don't know if they were sold here in South Carolina, so check all the baby ibuprofen products in your home and see if they match these products:
