Possible Bacteria in EzriCare Eye Drops: Fatal Consequences

By Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP

The recent news[1] about possible problems with EzriCare Artificial Tears has raised concerns for individuals who have used this product. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently issued an urgent warning about contaminated eyedrops that have reportedly killed one patient and caused several others to go blind. All of which were infected with Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. Concern arises while this bacterium is also presented at the Laundress litigation. For which the company voluntarily recalled their products because of possible health risks due to this bacterium.

Eye injuries, including macular degeneration, have become a part of the Elmiron federal litigation after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) demanded stronger warnings in 2020. As a result, individuals who have been impacted by contaminated eyedrops may have a case for compensation.
