On Friday, September 6, Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil Unit recalled 200,000 bottles of Motrin Infants Formula. The lot numbers covering the recall are the following:
The recall is the result of the bottles potentially containing tiny particles of plastic called PTFE, which is a plastic used in Teflon coating. The particles were found in another product containing Ibuprofen from the same third-party supplier whose Ibuprofen is used in the Infants Motrin. Therefore while these lots of the Infants Motrin do not definitively contain PTFE particles, there is a high likelihood that they do.
The recalled products were manufactured in Belgium due to the fact that the company’s primary plant in Pennsylvania has been shut down since 2010 after a string of recalls, including recalls of Tylenol, Motrin, and Zyrtec.
Johnson & Johnson has had to recall over 40 products since 2009, including oral contraceptives, hip implants, children’s Tylenol, and OneTouch strips used to test blood sugar levels.
