A product recall is issued when there is a discovery made about a certain product that is deemed unsafe to the consumer. The latest recall comes from Tesco and Asda who are recalling certain contact lens solutions. 

The recall was issued on Tesco’s website as well as a statement issued by Trading Standards UK.

Trading Standards UK said: “Bausch + Lomb have identified a potential fault affecting all batch codes of EasySept Hydro + 360ml products.

“Residual peroxide could potentially remain in the lens case after neutralisation.

“If the residual hydrogen peroxide is above product specification, the user could experience burning/stinging, irritation, red eye and in rare circumstances other more serious health consequences.”

Tesco added: “We’ve been made aware that Bausch + Lomb are recalling five of their products, as their containers haven’t undergone the correct sterilisation process.”

Products being recalled in the UK and Republic of Ireland include:

– Boston Advance Conditioner 120ml (product lot number: 53822876)

– Boston Advance Cleaner 30ml (product lot number: 53822398)

Products being recalled in the UK only:

– Boston Simplus 120ml (product lot number: 72619858)

– ReNu Multiplus 240ml (product lot number: 53636941)

– Biotrue 330ml (product lot number: 66684419)

The company said the recall was voluntary.

In a separate recall, Asda also issued a warning about Bausch + Lomb products.

The supermarket said: “There is a low risk of infection with these products, Bausch + Lomb has chosen to voluntarily recall potentially impacted batches of product because they cannot confirm their bottle suppliers conformance to its sterilisation process compliance requirements.”

Products sold in Asda being recalled:

– Renu (product lot numbers: MPS ME3025, ME3025, MF1594)

– Boston Conditioner (product lot number: MD1926, MD2511, MD2639, MD3209, MD4221, MD4368, ME2978, MF0511, MF0682, MF1170)

– Boston Cleaner (product lot number: MF0104, MF0679, MF0680, MF1593, MF2110)

Asda added: “If you have purchased Bausch + Lomb products as per the LOT code lists above, please visit www.blrecall.expertinquiry.com/, or bring it back to your nearest store to receive a full refund. You do not need your receipt.

“We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.”

Tesco is also recalling Eat Real white cheddar quinoa puffs 113g, because they may contain milk which isn’t stated on the packaging.

The supermarket said: “If you have a milk allergy or follow a vegan diet, please do not eat this product. 

“Instead, return it to a Tesco store, and we’ll give you a refund. No receipt is required.”

Customers should look for the best before dates up to and including May 2022.

Morrisons is also recalling certain batches of the quinoa puffs including the Mediterranean, white cheddar and quinoa kale puffs jalapeno and cheddar flavours. 

Again, the best before dates being recalled are all dates up to and including May 2022. 

The supermarket said: “No other products are affected by this issue. Eat Real apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and assure customers of their continuing commitment to the highest standard of product quality and safety.”
