SALT LAKE CITY — Members of the public who received solar eclipse-viewing glasses from the John A. Moran Eye Center are urged to throw them away, unless they bear the Clark Planetarium label.

Moran Eye Center officials said notified them of a recall of the glasses on Sunday.

“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,” a message from Amazon to the Moran Eye Center said.

Some of the eclipse glasses they distributed also have a Clark Planetarium label; those are not part of the recall.

“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.,” a statement from Moran Eye Center said.
