NuCel Labs, in conjunction with the FDA, is recalling of all Eye Drops and Eye/Ear Wash. The product has been recalled after an FDA inspection found that the product tested positive for bacteria and particulate matter, which deemed these products non-sterile. Non-sterile eye drops pose a risk of causing eye infections for consumers who use them, which in rare cases can lead to blindness.
Products are packaged in 1/4 oz plastic bottles. Eye drops are labeled: Eye Drops Caution: Do Not Use With Implants. Wash is labeled Eye/Ear Wash. All products labeled “Eye Drops Caution: Do Not Use With Implants” or “Eye/Ear Wash” are subject to the recall action. There are no lot numbers or expiration dates on the product. Approximately 500 units of these products have been distributed nationwide through retail outlets and the internet.
So far, NuCel Labs has not received any reports of injury or illness. The company has stopped all production and distribution of the eye drops and eye/ear wash and is cooperating fully with the FDA.
