Possible Contamination in Eyewash Solution Prompts 9,000+ Bottle Recall
Honeywell announced a voluntary recall of one lot of Eyesaline Eyewash solution as a precautionary measure due to a low risk of product contamination with Klebsiella pneumoniae.
Eyesaline Eyewash solution is used for emergency eye rinsing after an injury. K. pneumoniae is found in the normal flora of the mouth and skin but if present in the bottle, it may lead to infections in the eye that might be sight-threatening.
The recall affects approximately 9,700 32oz bottles with Lot #F16091-61. Honeywell has contacted distributors via phone, e-mail, and certified mail who have received this lot. They have been instructed to notify their customers and stop distribution of the affected product and return it to Honeywell.
