Voluntary Recall of EasySept Hydro+ 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaning & Disinfecting Solution in Europe
Bausch + Lomb UK is conducting a voluntary recall of EasySept Hydro+ 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaning & Disinfecting Solution in Europe.
Although this voluntary recall represents low risk to the consumer and is unlikely to cause serious health consequences, the company chose to initiate this voluntary action as a precautionary measure as part of its ongoing commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. Additionally, there have been no reports of adverse incidents in relation to this voluntary recall.
The company chose to initiate this voluntary recall based on internal testing that simulated normal product use. Testing showed occasional occurrences where the residual peroxide remaining in the lens case after neutralisation did not meet product specification.
