Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
THERE WERE INCONSISTENCIES NOTICED ON THE INSULATION OVERLAP. THE ELECTRODE HAS A LARGE DIAMETER SHAFT THAT TRANSITIONS TO A SMALLER DIAMETER SHAFT. THE 1ST LAYER OF INSULATION WHICH COVERS THE SMALL DIAMETER SHAFT OVERLAPS WITH THE 2ND LAYER OF INSULATION THAT COVERS THE LARGER DIAMETER SHAFT. ON SOME ELECTRODES IT APPEARS THAT THE OVERLAP IS TOO SHORT TO COVER THE TRANSITION WHICH MAKES THIS
FDA Determined
Cause 2
PRODUCTION CONTROLS: Process Control
