FDA Recalls ReNu with MoistureLoc for Fungal infections in consumers
Bausch & Lomb announced a global recall of ReNu with MoistureLoc Contact Lens Cleaning Solution On Thursday, May 11, 2006. A team from Bausch & Lomb met with Food & Drug Administration (FDA) officials to share information resulting from the company’s internal investigation into cases of Fusarium keratitis associated with ReNu with MoistureLoc.
Bausch & Lomb has proposed that unique characteristics of the formulation of the ReNu with MoistureLoc product in certain unusual circumstances can increase the risk of Fusarium infection. Based on this scientific and epidemiological data suggesting that ReNu with MoistureLoc may increase the chances of developing Fusarium , Bausch & Lomb has decided to permanently remove the ReNu with MoistureLoc product worldwide. FDA supports this decision.
