Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Mis-labeling: the product name on the label was erroneously declared as PERFECTUM TOOMEY EVACUATING SYRINGES instead of POPPER INTERCHANGEABLE HYPODERMIC SYRINGES for one lot of the product. Note: the product information (part number, description, lot number) found in the white box portion of the label is listed correctly.
FDA Determined

The firm has directed the customers to discontinue using or distributing the lot and return any remaining quantity of this lot of syringes. If the lot has been further distributed, the distributors were instructed to immediately contact their accounts, advise them of the recall situation and have them return their outstanding recall stock as indicated above.
