An artificial tears product investigated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been recalled due to possible contamination, multiple infections and at least one death.

Global Pharma Healthcare manufactures EzriCare Artificial Tears, which has been linked to a germ called pseudomonas aeruginosa.

The company said Thursday that all lots are being recalled.

At least 55 patients have been impacted, suffering from eye infections, blindness and one death with a bloodstream infection, the company said this week.

Cases have been reported in at least 12 states including California, New Jersey and Florida. Patients have suffered from permanent vision loss and at least one person died from a bloodstream infection, the CDC said in a memo on Jan. 20.
