Safety Alerts & Recalls

What does this mean?

iGuard is currently monitoring safety alerts for ibuprofen. If you have small bottles of Motrin IB/Ibuprofen in your home, look at the bottle to see if it is labeled with one of the recalled lot numbers SHC003 or SHC004. If you have any of the recalled product, the tablets may not work as well because these lots failed to dissolve properly when tested by the manufacturer. You may wish to either discard the recalled product or take it to the store where you bought it to see if they are willing to exchange it. Information about properly disposing of medications can be found here: http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm101653.htm

If you have any questions or concerns about Motrin IB or other ibuprofen products, or if you think you may be experiencing side effects, please follow up with your doctor.
