(CNN)If you use eye drops, this might be a good time to check your medicine cabinet.

Altaire Pharmaceuticals Inc. issued voluntary recalls for various Equate products, including for allergy relief, solutions, eye drops and gel drops — all manufactured and labeled for Walmart. The company also recalled several Perrigo prescription ointments listed on the FDA website.

“Administration of a nonsterile product intended to be sterile may result in serious and potentially life-threatening infections or death,” the recall says.
