solar eclipse glasses

Vanderbilt University Medical Center is recalling approximately 8,000 eclipse glasses that were handed out last weekend at the Williamson County Fair.

Vanderbilt says the glasses, which were purchased from a local vendor, should not be used to view the eclipse.

The glasses were given out by the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, which says they determined the glasses may not meet the highest safety standards.

The glasses in question have solid white paper frames and include the Vanderbilt Health logo on both temples of the frames.

If you bought a pair of the all-white glasses now being recalled, they may be exchanged for a new pair purchased directly from APO at Vanderbilt Health Walk-In Clinic locations beginning at noon Thursday, Aug. 17 through 10 a.m. on Monday morning, Aug. 21, or until the supply has been exhausted, whichever occurs earlier.

Here are the locations where exchanges can be made:

Brentwood, 134 Pewitt Drive, Suite 200
Cool Springs, 1834 McEwen Drive
Franklin, 919 Murfreesboro Road (Hwy. 96)
