On September 6, 2016, United Exchange Corp. of Cerritos, CA, a primary vendor of the Rugby®-branded Eye Irrigating Solution and Major®-branded Eye Wash, conducted a recall of several lots of those products due to microbial contamination. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has full knowledge of the recall.
Product details: Rugby Eye Irrigating Solution (NDC 0536-1083-97) and Major Eye Wash (NDC 0904-6491-20) are both usually used to flush the eye of irritants, specifically air pollutants or chlorinated water, in an effort to stop stinging or itching. The bottles contain 4 ounces (118mL) and would’ve been sold across the nation.
Risk: The contaminated product introduces a reasonable risk of sight-threatening infection.
Remedy: Anyone with access to the affected product should stop any consumption immediately and contact Rugby’s Customer Support with any questions.
