Project Watson Dog Eyelid Wipes Recalled By Bausch + Lomb Due To Bacteria, Fungi Risks

CPSC urges consumers to immediately stop using the wipes and throw them away due to the risk of infections.

Federal safety officials have announced a recall of Project Watson Eyelid Wipes for Dogs due to potential contamination with dangerous bacteria and fungi, which can create an infection risk for humans.

The Consumer Product and Safety Commission (CPSC) issued the Project Watson Dog Eyelid Wipes recall on May 2, after the company received several reports of the containers developing a film-like substance after they had been opened and used.

Bacteria and fungi, commonly found in soil and water, can enter the wipe container when it has been opened and in use and grow, infecting people with opened wounds or weakened immune systems who handle the wipes or container, which could result in serious health risks, the recall warns.

To date, the CPSC reports that there have been no injuries or illnesses of humans or pets.
