The company also recalled several Perrigo prescription ointments listed on the FDA website.

For Walgreens, Altaire has recalled several over-the-counter and prescription eye drops and ophthalmic ointments, including moisturizing eye drops, sodium chloride ophthalmic ointment and lubricant eye ointment.

The products are under the brand name Walgreens.
