CVS eye drops, ointment added to nationwide recall of sterility problems



Thousands of CVS health eye drops and ointments were added to the nationwide recall last week over sterility problems.

On Wednesday, Altaire Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced the recall of several over-the-counter eye products over the "lack of sterility assurance." The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said the New York-based company was recalling the products as a "precautions", and there have been no reports of injuries.

"Administration of a non-sterile product intended as sterile can lead to serious and potentially life-threatening infections or death," the message asserted, adding that CVS Health-labeled products were sold only at CVS sites. [1

The recall comes four days after Altaire issued a voluntary recall for several eye drops and ointments sold to Walmart and Walgreens because of the same concerns. Those who purchased any of the affected products are encouraged to contact Altaire by calling 1-800-258-2471 or emailing otcdruggist@aol.com.

Customers who have experienced side effects or other problems with using any of the recalled products should be consulted with a doctor or health care professional.
