Recall of Complete MoisturePLUS multipurpose contact lens care solution and Active Packs

TEXT SIZE: A A A

The FDA and Advanced Medical Optics, Inc (AMO) announced a nationwide recall of 183,000 units of its 12 ounce Complete MoisturePLUS multipurpose contact lens care solution and Active Packs distributed in the United States after contamination was detected in Japan of these units produced in China. Bacterial contamination compromised sterility and although none have yet been reported, it may have serious health consequences, including eye infection and microbial keratitis. Recently, serious complications from fungal keratitis caused the recall of similar Bausch & Lomb products, a competitor of AMO.

Symptoms of an eye infection include irritation, redness, pain, tearing, increased light sensitivity, blurry vision, discharge or swelling. Should you experience these symptoms, please remove your lenses and consult your eye care provider immediately.
