Johnson & Johnson is recalling 200,000 bottles of Motrin Infants formula due to the risk that they contain tiny plastic particles.

J&J's McNeil unit said Friday that the recall affects three lots of its popular Motrin Infants' Drops Original Berry Flavor, which is used to lower fever and treat aches and pains in children 2 years old and younger. The company warned that the medicine may be contaminated with specs of PTFE, a plastic also used in Teflon coatings. No illnesses or injuries have been reported to date, according to the company.

The recalled half-ounce bottles can be identified by their lot numbers: DCB3T01, DDB4R01 and DDB4S01

McNeil is asking retailers to take the affected products off store shelves. Consumers should stop using the affected medicine and call the company for a refund at 1-877-414-7709. Read more
