NuCel Labs Eye Drops and Eye/Ear Wash Products

Audience: Consumers, ophthalmologists, optometrists, other healthcare professionals

[Posted 01/31/2008] NuCel Labs and FDA informed consumers and healthcare professionals of a voluntary nationwide recall of all Eye Drops and Eye/Ear Wash Products. The products were recalled after testing indicated the presence of bacteria and particulate matter, deeming these products non-sterile. Non-sterile eye drops pose an unacceptable risk of causing eye infections, which in rare cases could lead to blindness. No illnesses or injuries have been reported to date. There are no lot numbers or expiration dates on the products. Consumers who have the product should discontinue use of the product and return it to NuCel Labs. See the manufacturer's press release for return shipping information.
