Oftalmi Announces Recall of the Camolyn Eye Drops Product Line

US Oftalmi is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of all Over-the-Counter Eye Drops and Nasal Drops. Products were packaged in 15 mL plastic bottles and were distributed nationwide to food and drug distributors for retail. These products are being recalled because conditions at the manufacturing facility cannot assure the sterility of the products. Products that are non-sterile have the potential to cause eye infections, which may affect the sight.

The following products and lot numbers are being recalled: Camolyn Homeopathic - Lots 049036 and 087934
