Oto-Ease® Ear Lubricant Recalled Due to Possible Microbial Contamination
Westone Laboratories Inc. is initiating a voluntary nationwide recall of all sizes and packaging configurations of Oto-Ease® ear lubricant.
An FDA sample analysis sparked by a consumer complaint found the product to be potentially contaminated with pathogenic bacteria and mold. Use of the product for easing the insertion of custom-fit ear molds and hearing aids may result in infectious complications of the ear canal and surrounding tissues.
The ear lubricant was previously recalled in October 2011 within the United States and from Australia.
No injuries or illnesses have been reported to date in relation to the recalled product.
