Burg Simpson is investigating concerning reports of infections, blindness, and death that have been linked to the use of EzriCare Artificial Tears – an over-the-counter eye drop for dry eyes and irritation.

According to a recent report, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified 50 patients from 11 states who suffered from bacterial infections in their eyes after using EzriCare Artificial Tears. These infections have proven difficult to treat, as the strains of bacteria affecting these patients have been resistant to antibiotics. As a result of these infections, some patients were hospitalized and suffered permanent vision loss. One patient died after the infection entered the bloodstream.

If you or a loved one suffered an infection, vision loss, or death after using EzriCare Artificial Tears, contact Burg Simpson’s experienced team of mass tort attorneys today by calling 888-895-2080 or filling out our Free case evaluation form https://burgsimpsonbak.wpengine.com/free-case-evaluation/
