Product Issues and Recalls - How to Handle

As you may know by now, Bausch & Lomb has run into a problem related to its product ReNu® with MoistureLoc® potentially causing fusarium keratitis in contact lens wearers. The company has asked pharmacies to temporarily take this product off the shelves. You can find the B&L press release here.

With recalls being a recurring topic, it is important to know what to do and what not to do. Luckily, there is precedence here, with the most visible being the Tylenol recall by the McNeil division of Johnson & Johnson. Vioxx, of course, is a more recent example. In addition, there is also a set of recommendations by Mark Senak on his Eye on Pharma blog. Check it out.
