U.S. health officials say a company is recalling its over-the-counter eye drops that have been linked to an outbreak of drug-resistant infections. The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday the maker of EzriCare Artificial Tears was voluntarily recalling its product after health officials sent a warning to doctors. The outbreak includes at least 55 people in 12 states. One died and at least five others had permanent vision loss. The outbreak is considered worrisome because the bacteria driving it are resistant to standard antibiotics.

President Joe Biden and his Cabinet will embark on a post-State of the Union “blitz” to visit at least 20 states next week to discuss his economic agenda after his Tuesday night address to Congress. The White House announced the travel plan Friday. Biden is expected to devote much of his second State of the Union address to highlighting his efforts to promote job growth, combat inflation and rebuild the nation’s infrastructure as he gears up for an expected run for reelection. After the speech, the president, vice president, and members of the Cabinet will hold over 30 events in two days to drive the message home.
