    Steinberg being feisty as ever! I do agree, preservative free is a bad claim.

      Preservative-free claims with eye drops should be a red flag for consumers.

      Cynical posturing from a criminally-incompetent Indian company. “Abundance of caution” with a body count and FDA Enforcement Report noting “Non-Sterility: FDA analysis found unopened products to have bacterial contamination.” and includes recall from the same folks of eye ointment for the same problem. Marketers were EzriCare and Delsam.

      Dave’s right- tough to see a scenario by which a consumer contaminates eye drops with aeruginosa but obviously a manufacturing risk.
