Eye Drops Recalled Over Concerns of Bacterial Contamination
This issue opens with a concerning matter: eye drops that were recalled for possible contamination with a rare strain of drug-resistant bacteria. The drops in question have been linked to infection, vision loss and even one death. So, if you use artificial tears products sold under the EzriCare or Delsam Pharma brand names, you’ll want to check out our first story.
Then, we’ll touch on two additional investigations. The first concerns water leaks in certain RAV4 models, while the second looks into reports of broken pedals on certain Sunny Health & Fitness exercise bikes.
Lastly, if you were affected by the Volkswagen and Audi data breach a few years back, it’s now time to file a claim for some cash. Check down below for more information on the deal and what you’ll need to do to get your claim in. Thanks for stopping by, and keep reading for the latest.
On February 2, 2023, Global Pharma Healthcare announced a voluntary recall of certain EzriCare and Delsam Pharma artificial tear eye drops over possible bacterial contamination. Contaminated eye drops could cause infection of the eyes or other body parts, which may lead to blindness and could potentially be fatal. Now, attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether lawsuits can be filed on behalf of those who were harmed by the products. Specifically, they’re looking to hear from consumers who developed an eye infection that led to vision loss or blindness. A successful lawsuit could provide compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. So, if you or a loved one developed vision loss or blindness after using EzriCare’s or Delsam Pharma’s eye drops, head over to this page to learn more about your legal rights and what you may be owed.
Some 2019-2022 RAV4 drivers have reported water leaking into their vehicles from underneath the headliner on both the driver’s and passenger’s side, causing mold growth and bad odors. Vehicle owners have speculated that the leak could be coming from the sunroof or roof rack. Now, attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a defect is to blame. If so, they may be able to file a class action lawsuit to help drivers get back money for repairs and potentially force Toyota to recall the cars or offer a free fix. Before that can happen, the attorneys need to hear from people whose 2019-2022 RAV4 had a water leak.

Some might say that having working pedals on your exercise bike is the key to a good workout, but most would agree that having those pedals break off mid-ride makes for a major inconvenience and potentially dangerous situation. Dozens of consumers have reported that the pedals on their Sunny Health & Fitness exercise bikes have broken or fallen off, sometimes within weeks or months of purchase. Some riders believed the issue was their fault – that they had assembled the bikes wrong – only to find that others had experienced the same problem. Now, it’s being investigated whether a defect is to blame and whether a lawsuit could be filed to help consumers get money back for some of the purchase price and any replacement pedals they bought. A successful case could also force the manufacturer to provide a free fix. If you’ve had problems with the pedals on your Sunny exercise bike, read up on the investigation right here.
If you’re one of the millions of people who received a notice back in June 2021 about the Volkswagen/Audi data breach, you’re likely qualified to claim some cash from a $3.5 million class action settlement. The settlement provides eligible individuals with the option to recover a set cash payment or reimbursement of out-of-pocket losses related to the exposure of their personal information. The amount of your cash payment ultimately depends on where you lived when the breach happened and what type of information you potentially had exposed. Claims must be filed online or postmarked by April 12, 2023, so be sure to get yours in before then. You can find everything you need to know about the settlement on this page.
