    I've been using the Moisture Plus one. I just went to an optometrist yesterday and she said my eyes were healthy, so that's a good sign I've not been infected. But I'm throwing away my stuff. Don't want to risk it.

    Hmm. I'm not sure if Renu is sold in the UK, and the people I know who use contacts use disposable ones, so it's all good on this end. :nod

    21 people. In the entire US. I somehow don't think this is a serious threat to me.

    I don't use ReNu, but I use contact stuff by the company Bausch & Lomb.
    Scary stuff, but at least the stuff I use by them for my contacts seem to be safe.

    Is this recall only in the U.S?

    Thats why I'm going for laser eye surgery may be a hell of a lot more expensive but I never have to worry about it again so long as it's not done in alley.
