Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The recall is being conducted as a precautionary measure due to out of specification results observed at the 24 months time point (out of 24-month licensed shelf life to expiration) during a Coseal stability study. The parameter that is out specification is an indicator of possible failure for the product to gel appropriately . Coseal's failure to gel does not represent risk for the patient's life
