FDA Reminds Veterinarians and Pet Owners about Eye Drop Recalls

March 13, 2024

The FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine is reminding veterinarians and pet owners about recalls of eye drops marketed under several brands, due to the risk of eye infection. 

These products were marketed for use in humans, but the FDA is aware that veterinarians may have dispensed or recommended that pet owners purchase them from pharmacies. Although the last recall took place in November 2023, veterinarians and pet owners may still be using the products. The FDA has received at least one adverse event in an animal related to the use of these eye drops. 

Veterinary hospitals and pet owners should check their eye drops against the brands and lots listed here and discard any products that are included in the recalls. Pet owners who have used these products on their pets and notice that the pets are rubbing or scratching at their eyes or have swelling or discharge of the eyes should consult their veterinarians immediately. To report adverse events in pets to the FDA, see How to Report Animal Drug and Device Side Effects and Product Problems.
