The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is advising people to stop using a specific brand of artificial tears called EzriCare due to its possible connection to multiple infections in the U.S. The CDC’s ongoing investigation has found that the majority of those affected had used artificial tears, with EzriCare being the most common brand.

The evidence points to a cluster of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections in 11 states, but a definite link has not been established. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an antibiotic-resistant bacteria found in the environment that can cause infections in various parts of the body, including the blood and lungs.

At least 50 cases, resulting in hospitalization, permanent vision loss, and at least one death, have been reported. The CDC has found the drug-resistant bacteria in open bottles of EzriCare, but testing of sealed bottles is still underway.

EzriCare has ceased selling the product and is advising customers against its use until the investigation is complete.
