Johnson and Johnson is being asked to recall over 69,000 units of it’s K-Y Liquibeads products after receiving over 200 complaints from consumers between June 25, 2010, through Dec. 12, 2011 that the product not dissolving or having an uncharacteristic consistency or texture.
A spokeswoman for the company said the recall wasn’t unsafe and does not affect other types of K-Y vaginal moisturizers. Consumers do not need to return any of the products.
“K-Y Liquibeads is being recalled from retailers and wholesalers to address the U.S Food and Drug Administration’s concerns that the product should be cleared under a separate medical device application,” the company said in a statement earlier this month. “We are moving forward with the process to obtain clearance for the product.”
K-Y Liquibeads had been sold as part of an application for an existing K-Y product. The FDA determined that the liquibead product needed a separate medical device (510K) application. At the time, McNeil said it would take whatever steps were necessary to address FDA’s concerns.
So if you go to the drug store looking for Liquibeads and its no longer on the shelves, consider Replens. Replens offers women a safe, effective solution to vaginal dryness and has received the FDA’s 510(k) clearance, a requirement many companies have not met. Replens is estrogen free and long-lasting and has been clinically tested and shown to be as effective as vaginal estrogen, about which so many health questions have been raised.
