Bausch & Lomb Inc, the maker of defective Renu Moistureloc Contact Lens Solution, now faces 573 product liability lawsuits stemming from eye infections caused by the recalled product. Among the lawsuits are 550 individual lawsuits and one consolidated federal class action lawsuit. According to a regulatory disclosure filed by Bausch & Lomb in 2007, these lawsuits have been filed in various federal and state courts in the U.S., as well as in courts outside the country.

Lawsuits against Bausch & Lomb began in 2006, when Renu Moistureloc was linked to fusarium keratitis, a fungal eye infection with the potential to cause blindness. To begin with, the company recalled Renu Moistureloc from Asian markets only, but in April 2006, the company recalled Renu Moistureloc in the U.S. as well. Finally, on May 15, 2006, a worldwide recall was issued for the defective contact solution.

As of May 18, 2006, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has confirmed

130 cases of fusarium keratitis infection in 26 U.S. states and one U.S. territory. Among these cases, at least eight people have required corneal transplants to save their vision and at least one person has gone blind. According to the CDC, bad hygiene habits among users were not to blame for the infections, but instead, poor disinfectant qualities in Renu Moistureloc were at fault.
