Why Were EzriCare Eyedrops Recalled?
On February 2nd, 2023, EzriCare Artificial Tears Lubricant Eye Drops were recalled by Global Pharma Healthcare. These artificial tears were one of the top-selling eye drops on Amazon and may have been used by countless individuals across the United States. The reason these eyedrops were recalled was due to a link to several outbreaks of infections in several states. Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacterium was found to be the primary cause of these infections.
This rampant bacteria has infected 81 people at the time of this writing (7/2023), and severe cases continue to overtake the victims, including 14 victims who have lost their vision and four victims who have died due to the infection. As more cases are discovered, it is important to know that you are not alone in this.

That being said, some parties who have experienced eye damage and other injuries related to EzriCare eyedrops may be eligible for compensation for the following:
- Medical expenses – this includes costs stemming from the initial medical procedures as well as any ongoing treatments needed due to injury caused by EzriCare eyedrops.
- Lost wages – if you were unable to work for an extended period of time because of your injuries, you may be entitled to receive compensation for lost wages or income.
- Pain and Suffering – victims who experienced physical pain, mental anguish, or emotional distress as a result of their injuries are entitled to compensation for these damages.
