Results RNA is recalling Lubrisine Eye Drops.
A recent FDA inspection found the product was manufactured using practices that do not support its sterility, and that it contains colloidal silver, which is not declared on the label.
Use of a non-sterile eye drop could result in a potentially sight threatening eye infection. Exposure to colloidal silver over an extended period of time could result in permanent discoloration of the conjunctiva.
There are no reports of adverse events or illnesses related to this recall to date.
The products can be identified by the following label and the lot number located on the bottom of the bottle.

The eye drops were distributed to wholesale and retail customers worldwide through healthcare practitioners, internet distributors, and the company's website.
