I Just Can't See What They're Talking About

Bausch & Lomb has suspended all U.S. shipments of its ReNu with MoistureLoc lens-care solution made at its plant in Greenville, South Carolina pending an investigation into whether or not this particular product aided in an outbreak in a rare fungal infection called Fusarium Keratitis. If left untreated, this type of infection has lead to blindness. After speculation that the illnesses were possibly related to their contact lens cleaner, Bausch & Lomb began a series of thorough plant inspections as well as exhaustive testing to ascertain that if indeed these cases were related to their product, and if so how to solve the issue. It's good to see that in an age of corporate scandal, an organization is willing to step up to the plate with the public and address problems head on. But, maybe the company ought to look at others means of public notification rather than newspapers, magazines, and websites ... just a thought.
