FDA has recalled several eye drop recalls in recent months due to various safety concerns. On November 15, 2024, there was a major recall of 27 eye drop products.

In this article, we are providing you complete information on FDA Eye Drops Recall. At the end, you will get a full list of all the recalled Eye Drop products with their brand names.

In January and February, two brands of eye drops were recalled due to their connection with a drug-resistant bacteria strain. This strain had caused at least four deaths and serious health issues in many others. Global Pharma recalled their eye drops in February due to a bacterial contamination.

Weeks later, two other types of eye drops were recalled because they posed a different kind of contamination risk. The FDA found unsanitary conditions at a manufacturing plant in October. As a result, 26 eye-care products were removed from shelves. In November, Amazon removed seven eye drops from its website. These products were not approved for sale in the United States according to the FDA warning.
