Tris Pharma has voluntarily recalled three lots of Infants’ Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension because they may have too much ibuprofen.

The products, sold under the brand names of Equate, CVS Health and Family Wellness, and used as a pain reliever and fever reducer, are the 0.5-ounce bottles of Ibuprofen Concentrated Oral Suspension.

According to the recall notice, “there is a remote possibility that infants, who may be more susceptible to a higher potency level of [the] drug” could experience nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, or more rarely, diarrhea.

Also, tinnitus (a ringing in the ear), headache and gastrointestinal bleeding could be possible adverse effects, although as of Thursday morning there haven’t been any reports to the Food and Drug Administration of such outbreaks.

The recalled lots are:
