Eye drops recalled over potential 'life-threatening infections'

A recall has been issued for a brand of eye drops and ointments sold at Walmart and Walgreens, which the federal government says is not sterile and could lead to possibly life-threatening infections, according to reports.

Altaire Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has issued a voluntary recall for various Equate brand allergy relief products, such as eye drops and gels, CNN reported.

The faulty products had expiration dates between July 2019 and January 2022, according to a press release from the Food and Drug Administration.

Using these products can result in serious and potentially life-threatening infections or death, the FDA said.

Altaire Pharmaceuticals, Inc makes their products for Perrigo Company PLC.

A full list of the recalled products is listed on the FDA website.
