“All ultrasound gels and lotions manufactured by Eco-Med are being recalled due to risk of bacterial contamination with Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc),” FDA said. “The use of affected ultrasound gels and lotions contaminated with Bcc may lead to serious infections, including bloodstream infections, which may result in sepsis or death. As of Aug. 31, 2021, there have been at least 66 infections, including 60 bloodstream infections associated with these affected products, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”

Eco-Med ultrasound gels and lotions are used during an ultrasound test to create images of organs and structures inside the body. Ultrasound gel is a clear, water-based gel that is applied to the skin on the area to be examined. The gel helps with the transmission of sound waves.

Healthcare providers and facilities have been advised to immediately stop using and discard all ultrasound gel and lotion products manufactured by Eco-Med. The company has shut down all operations and is no longer manufacturing or distributing any products.

If you are concerned about a potential B. cepacia infection from recalled ultrasound gels or lotions, you should contact your healthcare provider immediately.

This Class I FDA Recall began on August 4, 2021. Class I recalls are the most serious type of recall. Use of the recalled products may cause serious injuries or death.
