Blindness, Infections, and Death: The Hidden Dangers of Popular Eyedrops That the FDA Recall Could Not Prevent
Austin, TX – The Hastings Law Firm is helping victims file claims against the manufacturers of EzriCare Artificial Tears eye drops, a product at the center of a multistate outbreak of carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CRPA) infections. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced a nationwide recall of EzriCare and Delsam Pharma Artificial Tears eye drops in February 2023, following 55 reports of adverse events, including permanent loss of vision, eye infections, and death from a bloodstream infection.
The contaminated products were manufactured in India by Global Pharma Healthcare and imported into the United States under the name Aru Pharma Inc. Despite the FDA recall, the risk of permanent vision loss and other severe injuries caused by EzriCare eye drops is still a major concern.
As a seasoned medical malpractice and medical product liability attorney with over 30 years of experience, Tommy Hastings and his team at the Hastings Law Firm are helping victims affected by these contaminated eye drops to file claims. The firm understands the devastating impact of medical injuries on individuals and their families, and they are dedicated to providing legal guidance and representation to those in need.
“Consumers trust that the products they use will be safe and effective,” said Tommy Hastings, founder of the Hastings Law Firm. “When a product fails to meet these expectations and causes severe injuries, it’s important for victims to seek legal assistance to hold manufacturers accountable for their actions. Our team is committed to fighting for justice and obtaining the compensation our clients deserve.”
Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections can lead to severe conditions such as endophthalmitis, keratitis, conjunctivitis, cellulitis, and dacryocystitis, among others. The bacteria are known for their resistance to most drugs, making treatment difficult and leading to potentially life-threatening complications.
The Hastings Law Firm’s team of attorneys has a proven track record of success in product liability cases related to medical products, pharmaceuticals, and over-the-counter drugs. They have the knowledge, experience, and resources necessary to build a strong case for their clients, and they are committed to fighting for the maximum compensation possible.
