The original recall was announced this past November for 27 drops distributed to wholesalers and retailers by Velocity Pharma LLC. The recall was issued due to potential safety concerns after Food and Drug Administration (FDA) investigators found insanitary conditions.

The two drops and the changes are:

  • Lubricant Gel Drops, 15 ml., Carboxymethylcellulose Sodium Eye Drops 1.0% W/V: Correct Product  National Drug Code (NDC) numbers are  11822-9706-5 and 11822-4540-5.
