There has been a national recall of over-the-counter eyedrops and ointments that are sold at CVS.

Altaire Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that it is voluntarily recalling a host of products that are sold at CVS Health as a precaution due to fears of the items not being sterile.

“As a precautionary measure, Altaire is voluntarily initiating the recall due to management concerns regarding the sufficiency of Quality Assurance controls over critical systems in the manufacturing facility,” the company announced. "The FDA has determined these issues indicate a lack of sterility assurance. Administration of a non-sterile product intended to be sterile may result in serious and potentially life-threatening infections or death.”

There have been no reported adverse effects from consumers using any of the recalled items. The complete list of recalled items include:
