The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has shared important information about eye drops from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Eye drops from the 26 products listed here in the FDA MedWatch warning should not be used. CVS, Rite Aid, and Target are removing the products from their store shelves and websites. Products branded as Leader, Rugby, and Velocity may still be available to purchase in stores and online and should not be purchased.

Draeger Medical, Inc. is recalling its Carina Ventilators due to the presence of contaminants in the device’s airpath. The contaminants exceed acceptable levels if used by pediatric patients for more than 30 days. During testing, the firm found polyether polyurethane (PE-PUR) in the airpath of the Carina ventilator. This results in the emission of contaminant 1,3-Dichloropropan-2-ol, a potential carcinogen.

Please be aware, this recall is a voluntary correction, not a product removal.

Clinicians may continue to use the devices with adult patients and are instructed to not use the devices with pediatric patients.

The FDA has identified this as a Class I recall, the most serious type of recall. Use of these devices may cause serious injuries or death.
