Important Batch Recall Lacri-Lube Eye Ointment

***Important Batch Recall***

Dear Veterinary Professional,

Lacri-Lube Eye Ointment, 5g and 3.5g pack sizes                    PL00426/0041

Allergen Limited is recalling specific batches of Lacri-Lube Eye Ointments, please see batch details below. This is because a small number of complaints have been received about the incidence of small black particles which have found on or around the nozzle of the tube. The black particles originate from the inside of the cap and are formed when the cap is overtightened on the nozzle during manufacture of the tube. The particles may be introduced into the product at point of administration and may, therefore, get into the eye.

Remaining stock of the affected batches should be quarantined and returned to NVS via normal/returns procedure.
