The drops, distributed to wholesalers and retailers by Velocity Pharma LLC, are being recalled due to potential safety concerns after Food and Drug Administration (FDA) investigators found insanitary conditions.
All lots subject to the recall have expiration dates ranging from November 2023 to September 2025.
A risk statement accompanying the recall says: "For those patients who use these products, there is a potential risk of eye infections or related harm.
"These products are intended to be sterile. Ophthalmic drug products pose a potential heightened risk of harm to users because drugs applied to the eyes bypass some of the body’s natural defenses."
The recall comes just weeks after a separate massive recall was expanded to include 29 other eye drop products.
