According to the latest CDC data, the link between ReNu with Moisture Loc and the rare but dangerous fusarium keratitis fungus continues to grow sharply. The link between another ReNu product, ReNu Moisture Plus, grew, but more modestly. Of the 98 confirmed Fusarium keratitis cases for which the CDC has complete data, 93 people wore contact lenses and 59 used MoistureLoc, an increase of 27 cases from a week ago. Bausch has pulled MoistureLoc from circulation amid concerns about the high rate of infection links.

Those using MultiPlus, a market leader that remains on retailers’ shelves, has increased by four to 19, the CDC said.
