Florida Pharmacy Linked to Eye Infections

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention confirmed that products mixed in a Florida Pharmacy led to 33 reports of a rare fungal eye infection affecting people from seven states.

All of the people affected had undergone some type of eye procedure such as injections or surgery, according to MSNBC. The CDC reported that 23 of the people experienced some degree of impaired vision and 24 had to have another eye surgery.

A large amount of the cases were tied to a dye, triamcinolone injection and other drugs from Franck’s Compounding Lab, according to MSNBC. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration tested new bottles and syringes of the dye collected and found several species of bacteria and fungus.

Franck’s Lab recalled the lots of dye in March and one lot of triamcinolone was also recalled that month.
