Mentholatum Issues Nationwide Recall of Rohto Eye Drops

Jan 17, 2014

Mentholatum, a manufacturer of pharmaceuticals, and other healthcare products, is conducting a voluntary recall to the retail level of eye drops made in Vietnam due to a manufacturing review at the production facility in Vietnam involving sterility controls.

The recall includes only lots of Rohto Arctic, Rohto Ice, Rohto Hydra, Rohto Relief, and Rohto Cool eye drops that were manufactured in Vietnam and does not include eye drops made in Japan. Products manufactured in Japan are not included in this recall and continue to be available to consumers.

To date, there has been no evidence indicating that product does not meet specifications; however, the company is taking this action as a precautionary measure.
