Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Sterility may be compromised. Non-vented caps that connect to the 3-way stopcock attached to the transfer spike could prevent Ethylene Oxide from contacting the inside surfaces of the stopcock during sterilization, leading to a potentially non-sterile product. Use of the product may cause serious health consequences from potential sepsis/infection and the associated remote risk of death.
