About EzriCare Artificial Tears
EzriCare Artificial Tears Lubricant Eye Drops was a popular product available across the United States through major retailers such as Walmart and Amazon. The drops were primarily used for temporary relief of burning, irritation, or discomfort for those with dry eyes.
EzriCare’s formulation contains carboxymethylcellulose sodium, an ingredient aimed to replicate the effect of actual tears and ultimately help moisten dry eyes.
EzriCare Artificial Tears Injuries
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), EzriCare Artificial Tears have caused serious bacterial infections due to the presence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa inside the bottles.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a bacterium extremely resistant to antibiotics, making this infection difficult to recover from and particularly dangerous. Severe health effects include permanent vision loss or even death.
January 2023 EzriCare Update: CDC Advises Against Use
As of January 2023, more than 55 bacterial infections were found to be linked to the use of EzriCare Artificial Tears. These infections caused damage to the cornea, respiratory tract infections, and urinary tract infections. Adverse events from these 55 infections also included hospitalizations, permanent vision loss or impairment, and one death from sepsis (infection of the bloodstream).
The CDC has warned consumers and physicians to stop using EzriCare or Delsam Pharma’s Artificial Tears products pending further guidance and investigation.
February 2023 EzriCare Eye Drops Update: FDA Warns Against Use
In February, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) echoed the CDC’s warnings, alerting consumers and healthcare practitioners not to purchase or use the EzriCare eye drops.
According to the FDA, using these contaminated artificial tears “increases risk of eye infections that could result in blindness or death.” The FDA and CDC are now working in conjunction through ongoing testing of unopened bottles to determine whether Pseudomonas aeruginosa contamination occurred during the manufacturing process.
