Bausch & Lomb Notified by Hong Kong Officials in Fall 2005

According to an article published in the Wall St. Journal, the maker of ReNu contact lens solution, was notified of eye infections in November 2005. The number of those infected with the fungus fusarium keratitits has now risen from 176 last week to 186 cases in 29 states. The product distributed in Singapore and Hong Kong is manufactured at the same South Carolina plant as product sold in the United States. The question remains why didn’t Bausch & Lomb publicize this information in November when it first learned of the problem.
