More News Articles about Franck's and its link to Eye Infections: Is Florida Department of Health Investigating?

The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) has stated that it cannot divulge if Franck’s is being investigated at this time. If an investigation is being done and the pharmacy is believed to pose an immediate threat to patient safety, FDOH could issue an emergency suspension order (ESO) to immediately suspend the pharmacy’s license.  FDOH can't confirm whether they are investigating Franck's or any pharmacy until 10 days after the alleged investigation and only if probable cause is found.
