The safety and efficacy of any product on the market is important under any circumstances, but this is especially true when the product is used internally or in consumers' eyes. Because of this, California consumers might want to check their medicine cabinets for an eyewash solution that was recently recalled. Honeywell, the manufacturer of the tainted product, could potentially face incoming product liability suits from consumers injured by its eyewash.
The Eyesaline Eyewash is sold for emergency events, in which an individual who has suffered an injury needs to rinse his or her eyes. It is easy to understand how important it is that eyewash solutions be free of contamination for those who have already suffered an injury to their eyes, but Honeywell is recalling some of its 32-ounce bottles because of some troublesome bacteria. The contamination was discovered during routine testing performed by the company.
