The Mentholatum Company is recalling Rohto Arctic, Rohto Ice, Rohto Hydra, Rohto Relief and Rohto Cool eye drops made in Vietnam. The recall was initiated due to a manufacturing review at the production facility in Vietnam involving sterility controls. To date, there has been no evidence indicating that product does not meet specifications.
This recall includes only lots of product that were manufactured in Vietnam and does not include eye drops made in Japan. The lot numbers for products made in Vietnam will include the letter "V," for example, "Lot 3E1V." The lot numbers are located on the bottom panel of the carton and on the bottom of the eye drop bottle. The product is sold nationwide over-the-counter at pharmacies and retail stores.
