I'm truly sorry if this has been covered already on the forums, but I really can't find any information on it here at the moment.
The products have been found through a consumer complaint and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sample analysis to be potentially contaminated with pathogenic bacteria and mold. Use of the product as directed for easing the insertion of custom fit earpieces could result in infectious complications of the ear canal and surrounding tissues.
No injuries or illnesses have been reported to date. This recall should be carried out to the consumer level.

... That sucks.
Does anyone know of a similar product that I could use for the same purpose of "Oto ease"?
(I'm in Melbourne, Australia, if that helps)
