VOLUNTARY RECALL OF CERTAIN LOTS OF CONTACT LENS SOLUTIONS, EYE WASH AND EYE LUBRICANTS
No Known Safety Concerns Related to this Recall
Bausch + Lomb is conducting a voluntary recall of certain lots of Biotrue® contact lens solution, ReNu® MPS Multi-purpose solution sensitive eyes, ReNu® MultiPlus contact lens solution, Boston® cleaner, Boston® conditioning solution, Boston® Simplus Multi-Action contact lens solution, Sensitive Eyes® contact lens solution, EasySept® contact lens solution, Ophtaxia® eye wash solution, Sensitive Eyes® eye lubricant solution and associated private label brands that were manufactured at its facility in Milan, Italy. These lots are being recalled from consumers, pharmacies, eye care professionals, retailers, distributors and wholesalers.
This voluntary recall is being conducted in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Russia/CIS, Hong Kong and China, although the certain lots of Ophtaxia® eye wash solution are only applicable to France and Hong Kong, and Sensitive Eyes® eye lubricant solution to Hungary, Bulgaria and South Africa. Additionally, the only product being recalled in China is Boston® Simplus Multi-action contact lens solution.
This voluntary recall follows a notification received by Bausch + Lomb from one of its third-party suppliers in Milan, Italy, which sterilizes some components (bottles, plugs and caps) of these products prior to manufacturing in our facility in Milan, Italy, of a compliance issue with its sterilization process. Bausch + Lomb is one of many companies impacted by this situation.
The health and safety of everyone who uses our products is our utmost priority. While there is a low risk of infection with these products, Bausch + Lomb has chosen to voluntarily recall these certain lots of products because we cannot confirm the supplier’s conformance to process compliance requirements for some of the components of these products. No serious adverse events have been reported to date in association with this issue.
No other Bausch + Lomb products or lots are affected by this recall.
