Trail Rider - - HOT ON THE TRAIL -

Ki­netic Tech­nolo­gies and Ki­netic Vet, lo­cated in Lex­ing­ton, Ky., has vol­un­tar­ily re­called Hy-Op­tic Eye Ir­ri­gat­ing So­lu­tion (lot #10092015, ex­pi­ra­tion date 10/17); Op­tiVet Eye Ir­ri­gat­ing So­lu­tion (lot #12032015, ex­pi­ra­tion date 7/17); and Op­ti­mend Corneal Re­pair Drops (lot #01122015, ex­pi­ra­tion date, 10/17). This vol­un­tary re­call is the re­sult of de­fi­cien­cies in steril­ity, which may lead to de­te­ri­o­rat­ing eye con­di­tions, ir­ri­ta­tion and/or in­fec­tion, and po­ten­tially, loss of sight.

Each prod­uct is pack­aged in a branded box with the lot num­ber and ex­pi­ra­tion date printed on the box. The re­called prod­ucts were dis­trib­uted over­the-counter na­tion­wide through re­tail stores and through dis­trib­u­tors by ve­teri­nar­i­ans for clinic use and dis­pens­ing to their pa­tients.

To date, the com­pany hasn’t re­ceived ad­verse event re­ports at­trib­ut­able to the con­tam­i­na­tion of any of these prod­ucts. As a safety pre­cau­tion, the com­pany is con­duct­ing a vol­un­tary re­call and will con­tinue to closely mon­i­tor for re­ports of ad­verse drug re­ac­tions and prod­uct com­plaints.

If you’ve pur­chased any of these prod­ucts, stop us­ing the prod­ucts im­me­di­ately. You may re­turn the prod­ucts to the place of pur­chase for a full re­fund. If the treated eye is unim­proved or the con­di­tion has wors­ened, con­sult a vet­eri­nar­ian for fur­ther di­ag­no­sis and ap­pro­pri­ate treat­ment.

Di­rect ques­tions and/or ad­verse event re­ports to the com­pany at (877) 786-9882. Ad­verse events as­so­ci­ated with these or other prod­ucts for use in an­i­mals may also be re­ported di­rectly to the FDA. Go to www.fda.gov/An­i­malVe­teri­nary/Safe­tyHealth/ Re­por­taProb­lem/ucm055305.htm.
