Trusted Ezricare Eyedrops Attorneys in Houston, Texas
At Charles J. Argento, our Houston personal injury lawyer knows the important role sight plays in the lives of our Texas residents. Not only does our vision allow us to see our friends and family members, but it allows us to enjoy art, sports, and other activities that bring us joy.
This is why we wear sunglasses to shield our eyes from sun damage and visit optometrists to ensure their overall health. When allergies, dryness, itching, redness, or other irritations compromise the comfort of our eyes, we often turn to artificial tears without a thought.
Unfortunately, not all eye drops are safe for use. Recently, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began investigating a multistate outbreak of carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CRPA) from EzriCare® Artificial Tears, which could be purchased over the counter.
In February 2023, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned consumers to discontinue any existing use of EzriCare, and to avoid purchasing or using the product going forward due to potential contamination.
Shortly after, EzriCare’s manufacturer, Delsam Pharma, issued a nationwide recall citing “potential microbial contamination” that is resistant to certain antibiotics that are designed to treat bacterial infections.
Unfortunately, the warnings and recall may have come too late for our Texas residents. If you or someone you love has suffered eye injuries, infections, or vision loss after using EzriCare, contact our Harris County mass torts lawyers today for help pursuing the manufacturer for your full financial compensation.
