Only a few weeks after informing consumers about more than two dozen eye drop products, the US Food and Drug Administration recalled another batch of eye drops.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) declared on Wednesday that it was recalling 27 products from brands such as CVS Health, Rugby (Cardinal Health), Leader (Cardinal Health), Rite Aid, Target, Velocity Pharma, and Walmart because of possible safety issues “after FDA investigators found insanitary conditions.”
Kilitch Healthcare India Limited, the manufacturer, is voluntarily recalling the products. All lot numbers associated with the recalled products are included, and their expiration dates range from November 2023 to September 2025.
The manufacturer will notify its distributor Velocity Pharma LLC, which will then notify retailers and wholesalers about the voluntary recall and arrange for the return of any affected products, according to the FDA.
The FDA stated that although there was “a potential risk of eye infections or related harm” for users of these sterile eyedrops, the manufacturing company has not yet received any “reports of adverse events related to this recall.”
Anyone who may be in possession of these products is being advised by the FDA to cease using them.
The FDA advises consumers to contact their healthcare provider or seek emergency medical attention if they experience any signs or symptoms of an eye infection after using these products.
Additionally, the FDA advises customers to properly dispose of these products. Eye drops from Dr. Berne’s Whole Health Products, LightEyez Limited, Pharmedica USA, Teva Pharmaceuticals, CVS Health, Rugby (Harvard Drug Group), Leader (Cardinal Health), Rite Aid, Target, Velocity Pharma LLC, Walmart, and Apotex have all been discontinued.
