The FDA is warning consumers to avoid 26 eye drop products sold at major retailers due to potential eye infections and vision loss.

The products were marketed under various brands, including CVS Health, Rite Aid, and Target’s Up & Up brand.

“We’re committed to ensuring the products we offer are safe, work as intended and satisfy customers, and are fully cooperating with the FDA on this matter,” CVS stated.

“We are working with Velocity Pharma, the supplier of the impacted eye drop products to gain additional insight regarding the unsanitary conditions identified by the FDA at the manufacturing facility,” Cardinal Health announced.

Insanitary conditions were found in the manufacturer’s facility, leading to positive bacterial test results.

CVS, Rite Aid, and Target are removing the products from their shelves, while Cardinal Health is initiating a recall.

The FDA advises seeking medical care if signs of an eye infection occur after using these products.
