Similasan Eye Drops Recall
September 29, 2023
Similasan recently received warning letters from the FDA which brought up several concerns that the FDA had about the marketing and manufacturing of homeopathic eye drops and the safety of one of the preservatives used in their manufacture, silver sulfate.
Pending resolution of the FDA concerns, Similasan has voluntarily suspended the sale and distribution of all Similasan eye drop products to US retailers. Similasan is cooperating with the FDA to quickly resolve this matter.
