It is the responsibility of all manufacturers to ensure the safety and efficacy of their products prior to the marketing of them to the general public. Failure to adequately measure possible side effects associated with the use of a given product could lead to a manufacturing defect that is capable of causing serious harm to consumers using the product. Manufacturers can be held accountable for injuries and deaths caused as a result of defects associated with the use of their products.
One such manufacturer currently being held accountable for injuries caused as a result of product defects is the eye health company Bausch & Lomb. The manufacturer of a large line of contact lenses and related supplies, Bausch & Lomb has recently been forced to issue a global FDA recall for their popular ReNu with MoistureLoc contact lens solution. An internal report conducted by Bausch & Lomb and an ongoing FDA investigation have established a causative link between the use of ReNu with MoistureLoc and the development of a serious eye fungal infection called Fusarium Keratitis.
