Kadesh, Inc. of Garden Grove, CA is voluntarily recalling all lots of Puriton Eye Relief Drops in the 0.5 oz. (15ml) bottle.  During a recent FDA inspection, investigators noted the product is manufactured without necessary production controls to assure sterility.  Use of a non-sterile eye drop is potentially vision-threatening due to the risk of an eye infection, and possible destruction of eye tissues leading to scarring, glaucoma or vision loss. The product was distributed nationwide.  Kadesh, Inc. is notifying its distributors and customers by recall letter and is arranging for return of all recall products.  Consumers and businesses that have the product are recommended to stop using and selling.
