EzriCare recalls eye drops linked to bacterial infections.

FDA warns consumers not to purchase or use EzriCare Artificial Tears due to potential contamination.

The producer of a brand of over-the-counter eye drops is recalling the product after a possible link to an outbreak of drug-resistant infections, according to U.S. health officials. The CDC has identified at least 55 people with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a type of bacterium resistant to most antibiotics. There have been 55 cases reported across 12 states.

Opened bottles of EzriCare artificial tears matched the outbreak strain. The CDC is currently testing unopened bottles of the product to see if the bottles became contaminated during manufacturing. It is recommending that clinics and patients pause their use of the product until both the CDC and FDA issue additional guidance.

Those who have used the product may begin showing symptoms of an eye infection, which include yellow, green, or clear discharge from the eye, eye pain or discomfort, redness of the eye or eyelid or blurry vision.
