Kinetic Technologies and Kinetic Vet has voluntarily recalled on three eye solution products. This voluntary recall is the result of deficiencies in sterility, which may lead to deteriorating eye conditions, irritation, and/or infection.

Bacteria were detected in some of the samples. The product's lack of sterility can lead to deteriorating eye conditions, irritation and/or infection, and, potentially, loss of sight.

To date, the company has not received adverse event reports attributable to the contamination of any of these products.

The affected products are: Hy-Optic Eye Irrigating Solution – NDC # 51031-011-15, Lot # 10092015, Exp. Date 10/2017, OptiVet Eye Irrigating Solution – NDC # 51031-011-15, Lot # 12032015, Exp. Date 07/2017, Optimend Corneal Repair Drops – NDC # 51031-013-10, Lot # 01122015, Exp. Date 10/2017.

Each product is packaged in a branded box with the lot number and expiration date printed on the box. Hy-Optic Eye Irrigating Solution and OptiVet Eye Irrigating Solution are packaged in 15 mL oval eye drop containers and labeled prior to packaging. No animal species are listed on the label for use in non-specified animals. Optimend Corneal Repair Drops is packaged in a 10 mL circular eye drop container and labeled prior to packaging for use in dogs, cats and horses for the treatment of corneal ulcers.

Consumers who have purchased Hy-Optic, OptiVet, and Optimend should stop using the product(s) at once and may return product(s) to the place of purchase for a full refund.

If the treated eye is unimproved or the condition has worsened, owners should consult with a veterinarian for further diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Untreated eye conditions may result in pain and potential loss of eyesight.
