Action Urgent Medical Device Recall Notice letters, dated August 2008, and response forms were mailed to each consignee. Distributors were instructed to forward copies of the recall letter and response forms to their customers. The letters identified the affected products, gave the reason for the recall, the hazard involved, how to identify the product, actions to prevent the failure, and procedures to mitigate risk if failure occurs. The letter stated that Invivo would provide replacement batteries but until replacements were provided, customers should handle batteries over an elevated area and to make sure batteries are handled in the absence of paper or other flammable materials. If customers wish to remove the battery from the module in order to conserve battery life, they are to disengage the battery from the module and place the battery on a table or in the battery charger. Do not allow the battery to be disengaged and remain partially inserted in the module as this may cause the battery to slip from the module and fall to the floor.
