On May 6, Texas woman Kathy Kennedy filed a product liability suit against Bausch and Lomb Inc., maker of contact lens solution ReNu with Multiplus, in the Marshall Division of the Eastern District of Texas alleged that the solution put her at risk of losing her eye. She claims that upon purchase, the solution was “defective and unreasonably dangerous” because of contamination. 

Kennedy’s suit alleges that her eye was infected by the solution with a fungus that resulted in her suffering extreme pain and anguish. She claims that because of using the solution, she required hospitalization and has the possibility of surgical procedures that would remove her eye.

According to the complaint, the contact solution was either defective in its chemical composition or defective because of contaminants introduced during manufacture.

According to Kennedy, Bausch and Lomb was negligent through its failure to pull the product from retail, its continued marketing and sale or ReNu with Multiplus, its failure to warn of all potential side effects, and its misrepresentation and concealment of potential risks or dangers of use.

Kennedy seeks damages for medical expenses, physical pain, mental anguish, lost earning capacity, impairment, disfigurement, pre and post-judgment interest, and costs of suit.
