At least 200,000 bottles of a Motrin's infant medicine product has been recalled by the Johnson & Johnson McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division on Friday.

Tiny particles of plastic were found in three product lots during the manufacturing of Concentrated Motrin Infants' Drops Original Berry Flavor, which is used for children age two and younger.

McNeil say that the particles originated in a shipment of ibuprofen, a pain reliever and fever reducer, from a third party supplier.

Three lots were released to the market made with the same batch of the active ingredient in half-ounce bottles: Lot #DCB3T01, Lot #DDB4R01, and Lot #DDB4S01.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is aware of this recall and posted the notice from McNeil on its website.

McNeil is asking retailers to remove the affected lot from stores and consumers to discontinue and dispose of any product listed in the recall.
