On 7/20/2012 the firm became aware that a lot of tubing was distributed by the supplier after it was rejected by Steris due to failing process indicators.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action Steris sent a Urgent Voluntary Recall Notice letter dated August 2, 2012, to all affected customers. The letter identified the product the problem and the action needed to be taken by the customer. Steris has learned that the VIS-U-All tubing is not performing to product specifications. Upon receipt of replacement product we ask that you destroy any remaining inventory of the affected lot in your possession. In the interim period, should you receive a failing result following a sterilization cycle, the results must be handled in accordance with your internal hospital procedures.
