Bausch & Lomb Recalls Contact-Lens Solution
"Bausch & Lomb Inc. is recalling more than a million bottles of a contact-lens solution and expects to report that 2006 sales fell 3% from a year earlier. The Rochester, N.Y., eye-care products maker said the 12 lots of ReNu MultiPlus contact-lens solution made at its Greenville, S.C., plant were being recalled in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, South Korea and Taiwan. Last year, Bausch & Lomb recalled a different lens solution, ReNu with MoistureLoc, manufactured at the same plant, after it was associated with a serious fungal infection of the eye. Bausch & Lomb said the recall of MultiPlus -- a product it offered free to MoistureLoc users after that solution was shelved -- is a very different situation that hasn't been linked to any 'serious adverse events.' It said the lots are being recalled because they contain an elevated level of trace iron, which can cause discoloration and shorten the product's shelf life. The company said it launched an investigation after getting three reports of discolored solution."

Reluctance and Silence on Recalls
"Marla Felcher is an authority on product safety, having studied it for more than eight years. But Ms. Felcher, a marketing consultant and the author of 'It's No Accident: How Corporations Sell Dangerous Baby Products,' has never had a product she owned recalled until last month. That was when Lenovo announced that certain IBM ThinkPad notebook computers contained batteries that could catch fire. Yet Ms. Felcher didn't notice the announcement made by the company and the Consumer Product Safety Commission. It was only after a colleague at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, where she is an adjunct lecturer, sent an e-mail message to the faculty warning them that Ms. Felcher learned she was carrying a potential fire hazard under her arm. 'I would have missed it,' she said. Her experience is not unlike that of millions of consumers, most of them considerably less aware of recall notices. Despite major recalls occurring several times a month - so far October has brought a few million more exploding notebook batteries, a strangling cardigan for children and a pumpkin-decorating kit cum choking hazard - most people are oblivious to them."
