    April 12 (Bloomberg) -- Stores across America started clearing their shelves of a Bausch & Lomb Inc. contact lens cleanser linked to a rare infection that can cause blindness, and doctors said there may be more cases.
    Retailers including Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Walgreen Co. and Rite Aid Corp. yesterday ordered units to stop selling Bausch & Lomb's ReNu with MoistureLoc. The contact lens maker suspended shipments without recalling the product after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it was reviewing reports of 109 cases of suspected fungal keratitis.

    109.. that's a good number.
