Tris Pharma is recalling liquid Infants' Ibuprofen it sells as generic brands for CVS, Walmart, and Family Dollar because the medicine may have higher concentrations of ibuprofen.

The company says there is a "remote possibility" that infants more susceptible to medication with a higher potency of ibuprofen might suffer permanent renal injury.

Ibuprofen is an over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) frequently used to relieve pain that is associated with headaches, dental pain, menstrual cramps, muscle aches and arthritis.

The recalled lots from Walmart are 00717009A, 00717015, and 00717024A.
