April 20, 2012 – The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning today stating that it has received numerous reports of a serious eye infection known as fungal endophthalmitis in patients being treated with Brilliant Blue G (BBG) during eye surgery. This is the FDA’s second Brilliant Blue G warning to be issued in a month.

What’s the Problem with Brilliant Blue G?
In addition to Brilliant Blue G being repeatedly linked to fungal endophthalmitis, the FDA also announced that it has received multiple reports of serious eye infections in patients who were given injections with triamcinolone, the active ingredient contained in Brilliant Blue G.
Both Brilliant Blue G and triamcinolone were supplied by Franck’s Pharmacy in Ocala, Florida. Brilliant Blue G has not been approved by the FDA. Franck’s has recalled all lots of BBG and one lot of Triamcinolone Acetonide P.F.
The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) is advising healthcare professionals to immediately stop using triamcinolone-containing products purchased from Franck’s Pharmacy until further notice. Anyone concerned about an eye infection should contact their physician immediately.
