2023 Eye Drop Recall is Expanding

Earlier this year, in April, I posted about a nationwide recall of eye drops, by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA has now expanded its list of eye drops recalled this year. These recalled products could be tainted with bacteria.
The FDA says the eye drops are marketed under retailers and brands at Walmart, CVS, Rite-Aid, Target, Up & Up, Leader Rugby, and Velocity Pharma. The FDA is warning consumers to at once stop using 27 over-the-counter eye drop products.
Since April’s post:
In May the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) noted that 81 patients in 18 states contracted a rare strain of drug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
In August the FDA issued a warning to the public to immediately quit using Dr. Bernie’s MSM drops due to bacterial and fungal contamination. The drops also contain methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), an ingredient not approved for use in the eyes.
In October and November, more eye drops were added to the FDA list of recalled eyedrops

The complete FDA list of recalled products can be found here.
