Children’s ibuprofen recalled

A BATCH of ibuprofen for children has been removed from the shelves.
The Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS) has ordered the recall of all units of a lot of Ibuprofen Kern Pharma 40 mg/ml.
As reported by the company in a statement, consumption of the affected lot does not pose risks to the health of patients and the withdrawal is due to a result of something that is “out of spec” which was detected in routine checks on sampling the market. The company detected yeast in the medicine above the usual limit, but said that it is not pathogenic or harmful for human consumption.
Pharmacies have been alerted and asked to remove the batch.
Customers with any concerns can call 902 502 500 where questions will be answered.
