Safety Alerts & Recalls

What does this mean?

iGuard is currently monitoring safety alerts for ibuprofen (also sold as Advil or Motrin). If you have bought generic ibuprofen from a pharmacy or retail store in Arkansas, look at your bottle to see if your ibuprofen is labeled "Equate Ibuprofen Tablets, 200 mg, 100 coated Tablets" and has the lot number 9BE1961 printed on it. If you think your bottle of ibuprofen is involved in the recall, you should return it to the store where you purchased it to examine and possibly exchange. If you are not sure who has made your ibuprofen or cannot find a "lot" number, please take your container to your pharmacy or the store where you purchased it for them to check.

Recall of Single Lot of Equate Ibuprofen Tablets, 200 mg

L. Perrigo Co has voluntarily recalled a single lot of Equate Ibuprofen 200 mg tablets packaged in bottles of 100 tablets. The bottles were available for over-the-counter purchase in Arkansas. These recalled tablets have a lot number 9BE1961. These tablets are being recalled because there may be metal shavings in the containers.
