United Exchange Corp. issued a recall for Rugby® Eye Irrigating Solution and Major® Eye Wash on September 6. On September 7, another recall was issued for Family Care® Eye Wash in 4-oz (118mL) bottles.

No illnesses have been reported. The manufacturer learned about the problem after receiving a complaint.

Anyone who experienced an eye infection should report it to the FDA. According to the agency:

Use of a contaminated product could be calamitous for any population since there is a reasonable probability of a potentially sight threatening eye infection.”

Eyewash is supposed to contain purified water. It is used to relieve itching, remove foreign objects, or flush out chemicals.

Eye infections can occur on the surface of the eyeball, inside the eyes, or on tissues surrounding the eyes (called conjunctiva). In severe cases, infections cause scarring and permanent vision loss or blindness.

The symptoms of an eye infection include redness, eye pain, discharge, watery eyes, itching, blurry vision, sensitivity to light, and vision loss.

  1. I have been using this eye wash and I have all the symptoms. The thing is before I found out about the recall I kept using it because I just needed to use it more. I stopped using it when I got the news in a letter. I went to an eye doctor and he has been giving me different kinds of eye drops to try and come back and no change my eyes still water, burn at times, blurry and light sensitive. What should I do?
