The maker of CVS-brand eye drops has recalled specific, multiple lots of over a dozen types of the product because they may not be sterile.

No adverse effects have been reported, but Altaire Pharmaceuticals implemented the voluntary recall, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration out of an "abundance of caution."

The FDA said that use of a non-sterile product intended to be sterile could result in serious and potentially life-threatening infections or death.
