Smithfield, RI – Honeywell Safety Products has issued a voluntary recall of approximately 9,700 bottles of Eyesaline emergency eyewash solution.

The 32-ounce bottles from lot number F16091-61 are being recalled as a precaution because of “a low risk of contamination” with Klebsiella pneumoniae, a bacteria that can cause sight-threatening eye infections. The lot number can be found on the outside of the product case and on individual bottles.

No injuries related to use of the solution have been reported and batch testing has not detected any contamination, Honeywell announced in an Aug. 19 press release
