FDA Can't Find ReNu-Fungus Connection

A preliminary inspection of Bausch and Lomb's plant fails to find connection.

The source for a recent outbreak of fungus infection associated with ReNu with MoistureLoc remains a mystery.


SACRAMENTO, May 28, 2006 -- A recently released preliminary investigation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) failed to find any direct connection between Bausch & Lomb's ReNu with MoistureLoc contact lens solution and the recent outbreak of  Fusarium Kerititis, a fungus infection that can cause permanent vision loss if left untreated.

The FDA stressed that although relatively minor inconsistencies with approved manufacturing requirements were identified, analysis of raw materials and the manufacturing plant in Greenville SC where the suspect contact lens solution was manufactured and packaged found nothing to tie ReNu with MoistureLoc to the fungus.

The report is preliminary and the FDA expects to have a more expansive analysis available soon.
