Back To Vidyya FDA Issues Nationwide Alert On Recall

Health Risk From "Rich's MSM Eye & Ear Drops"

The FDA is warning consumers not to purchase or use a product known as Rich's MSM Eye & Ear Drops because it may be contaminated with yeast and Pseudomonas fluorescens - a bacteria that can cause severe, and in rare cases sight-threatening, eye injuries. The distributor of this product, Rich Distributing, of Portland, Oregon is voluntarily recalling the product.

Although the scope and volume of the product's distribution is not known at this time, it was sold in one-ounce containers over the Internet and at retail locations to consumers throughout the country.

The recall was undertaken after FDA laboratory analysis revealed these potentially serious contamination problems.

Consumers who may have used this product are urged to contact their physicians, especially if they applied it to their eyes.
