Westone Laboratories Inc. Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of all sizes and packaging configurations of Oto-Ease ear lubricant
Published: Jul 17, 2012
Westone Laboratories, Inc. is initiating a voluntary nationwide recall of all sizes and packaging configurations of Oto-Ease® ear lubricant. The products have been found through a consumer complaint and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sample analysis to be potentially contaminated with pathogenic bacteria and mold. Use of the product as directed for easing the insertion of custom fit ear molds and hearing instruments (including hearing aids) could result in infectious complications of the ear canal and surrounding tissues.
This product was previously recalled in October 2011 within the United States and from Australia (without FDA knowledge).
