Weider's Eyedrops

Audience: Healthcare professionals and Consumers

Aloe Flex Enterprises of Dickinson, Texas is recalling all lots of its 1 ounce bottles of "Weider's Eyedrops" due to potentially serious health risks associated with bacterial contamination. Samples analyzed by the Food and Drug Administration were found to contain bacteria including Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-baumannii, which in some cases can cause sight-threatening injury. The recalled "Weider's Eyedrops" and "Welder's Eyedrops" were sold over-the-counter in Dickinson, Texas.
