Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The lot of Baxter Solution Set for Epidural Use is being recalled because the position of the slide clamp and roller clamp may have been reversed during assembly. The reversed orientation of the slide clamp and roller clamp will cause the set to be incorrectly loaded into an infusion pump, resulting in fluid flow from the patient to the pump, rather than from the pump to the patient.
