The list the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provided late last month five Cardinal Health, Inc. products branded as Leader. The list has been updated to include a sixth product and can be viewed here in this link from the FDA.

Those who have signs or symptoms of an eye infection after using these products should talk to their healthcare provider or seek medical care immediately, the FDA said.
CVS, Rite Aid, and Target are removing the products from their store shelves and websites. Products branded as Leader, Rugby, and Velocity may still be available to purchase in stores and online and should not be purchased.
