A recall on infant ibuprofen first announced last December has been expanded over concerns it might be too potent. The expanded recall includes Infants Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension, sold at CVS and Walmart stores under the CVS Health and Equate labels.  Both one-ounce and half-ounce bottles are included. The makers say the drug’s concentration could be as much as 10 percent higher than listed and potentially dangerous for babies.  No adverse effects have been reported so far.

The voluntarily recall includes the lots listed below:
