(THE BLAZE) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an update to an earlier warning about a bacterial contamination in eyedrop brands that have caused three deaths and four cases of eyeball removal, as well as other reports of vision loss.

EzriCare Artificial Tears and Delsam Pharma’s Artificial Tears were part of an early February 2023 recall over “possible contamination,” which was echoed by the EzriCare brand, as well.

The CDC worked in conjunction with the recall advisory to inform citizens about the contamination of the eyedrops that included a drug-resistant strain of bacteria called pseudomonas aeruginosa.
