Bausch & Lomb recalls 1.5 million bottles of ReNu MultiPlus Lens Solution

B and L is recalling about 1.5 million bottles of ReNu MultiPlus because trace amounts of iron could cause the cleaner to lose effectiveness earlier than normal.

The optical products maker also reported a modest drop in fourth-quarter and full-year sales in 2006, citing sluggish contact lens sales amid a slower-than-expected recovery from last spring's recall of MoistureLoc, which was blamed for an outbreak of severe fungal eye infections.

No injuries have been reported, thankfully.

The recalled lots carry the expiration date “2008 – 03” on the bottle.
