Eclipse Glasses Recalled

Eclipse Glasses Recalled

Aug 14, 2017 4:41 PM

The John A. Moran Eye Center on Sunday was among many across the country notified via email by Amazon.com of a recall of solar eclipse glasses.

“Amazon has not received confirmation from the supplier of your order that they sourced the item from a recommended manufacturer. We recommend that you do not use this product to view the sun or the eclipse.”

Moran is asking anyone who received a free pair of solar eclipse glasses from Moran to discard them unless they have the Clark Planetarium label.

Anyone who purchased a pair for $1.50 from a Moran optical shop may return the glasses or their receipt to the location they purchased them from for a full refund. Consumers with questions may call 801-587-0712, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
