The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning to the makers of certain over-the-counter products designed to remove tear stains in dogs and cats.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning to the makers of certain over-the-counter products designed to remove tear stains in dogs and cats. The FDA wants distribution to stop until products can be reviewed for safety and effectiveness. The agency submitted letters to the manufacturers of Angels' Eyes, Angels' Glow, Pets' Spark, Glow Groom and Health Glow, as these products contain the antibiotic tylosin tartate, which is not approved for use in dogs and cats. The antibiotic has also not been approved for treatment of conditions such as epiphora, commonly associated with tear stains.

According to the FDA, these products may be subject to further enforcement action, including seizure or injunction against the companies that manufacture or distribute them, if they continue to be marketed.
