A company is recalling its infant ibuprofen product because of concerns it contains a higher concentration of the drug than advertised.

Tris Pharma on Wednesday issued the voluntary recall of the medication, sold in 0.5 oz. bottles as "Concentrated Oral Suspension, USP (NSAID), 50 mg per 1.25 mL". "Tinnitus, headache and gastrointestinal bleeding".

The over-the-counter liquid pain reliever and fever reducer is meant for infants who are between the ages of 6 months and 23 months old.
