EzriCare Artificial Tears Lawsuit Lawyer in Texas
On February 2, 2023, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned consumers not to purchase or use EzriCare® Artificial Tears due to potential contamination. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concurrently began an investigation into a multistate outbreak of carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CRPA) associated with using the over-the-counter eye drops.
As a result, our Texas EzriCare Artificial Tears lawsuit attorneys are pursuing EzriCare’s manufacturer, Delsam Pharma, for producing eye drops that cause “potential microbial contamination” that is resistant to certain antibiotics that are used to treat bacterial infections in humans.
If you or someone you love has contracted an eye infection or other injury because after using EzriCare, contact our skilled Texas personal injury attorneys today to learn more about your legal rights and options to pursue the manufacturer for your full financial recovery.
