FDA warns against using 26 eye drop products due to infection risk

The FDA has expanded its list of eye drops recalled in 2023 because the products could be tainted with bacteria.

Store-brand products sold at retailers including CVS, Rite Aid, Target and Walmart are included in the latest recall, posted on Wednesday by the federal safety agency. The recall by Kilitch Healthcare India cited “safety concerns” after FDA investigators found unsanitary conditions at the facility where the products were made.

The FDA has cited a “risk of eye infections that could result in partial vision loss or blindness” in cautioning consumers against using the now-recalled products in late October. FDA investigators found bacteria in samples taken from the production plant, the agency noted in its warning. As of Nov. 13, Kilitch said it hasn’t received any reports of adverse health effects linked to the recall.
