It added that the plastic particles contamination came from a shipment from a third party supplier of ibuprofen, which is a major component of the drops.

Apart from recalling the lots, J&J has also suggested customers who purchased drops belonging to the recalled lots to pour away the drops and contact the company through the helpline, 1-877-414-7709, to receive refunds.
