The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced the voluntary recall of NuCel-brand eye drops and eye-ear wash due to possible contamination.
NuCel Labs of Idaho Falls, Idaho, initiated the nationwide recall after an FDA inspection indicated bacteria and particulate matter in the products, presenting a health risk.
The recalled products are packaged in 1/4 ounce bottles bearing no lot numbers or expiration dates, the FDA said, noting approximately 500 units of the products have been distributed nationwide through retail outlets and the Internet.
