Misleading News Reports about CooperVision Recall

"The FDA issued a recall for CooperVision’s Avaira Aquaform comfort science daily wear sphere soft contact lenses due to the unintended presence of a silicone oil residue on the lenses," says goes one news release.This implies that there was a third recall for CooperVision's CLs. However, all the "news" stories, including on CNBC, reference the Nov. 15,2011, FDA recall, which has been reported thoroughly. They also link the CooperVision recall notice and the FDA's notice, both dated mid-November or mid-August. In other words, the news that came out on Dec. 7, 2011, does not reflect a new recall.
