“Bausch + Lomb, the global eye health company, is conducting a voluntary recall of its Soothe® Xtra Protection (XP) eye drops. Soothe XP is only available within the United States. (Expiration Dates: February 2011 through August 2012)
Bausch + Lomb chose to initiate this recall based on testing which showed specific lots of the Soothe Xtra Protection (XP) product were out of specification for preservative efficacy prior to their listed date of shelf-life expiration. There have been no adverse events reported for this product which have been attributed to preservative efficacy.
Bausch + Lomb has chosen to voluntarily recall ALL LOTS of Soothe Xtra Protection (XP) eye drops in the interest of patient safety. Product which is out of specification near the end of shelf-life may present insufficient protection against inadvertent microbial contamination during storage and usage of the product. Potential adverse events may include: burning, stinging, eye redness or eye discomfort. Please contact your doctor if you have any of these symptoms.”
