According to a Ministry of Health announcement, Zovirax eye ointment from batches 4E915 (expiration 5.2019) and 4B909 (expiration 2.2019) has been recalled due to the suspected presence of solid particles in the ointment.

The Ministry of Health has ordered the manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to remove the effected product from use.

Individuals using ointment from either of these batches should discontinue use immediately, go to their doctor for instructions and alternatives, and are requested to return the product to the pharmacy.
