Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Some vessels may leak. If leakage occurs, patient results will be flagged and are not reportable.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action The recalling firm issued an Urgent Field Safety Notice dated 11/2009 to all affected customers. Customers have been told to discard any bags of the affected lot. If the affected lot is the only lot the customer has, customers can examine a vessel from the bag. If the vessel mold cavity identity is B8, customers should discard the bag. Thus customers can use the lot if the cavity mold is anything other than B8. In addition, customers have been told to empty the LOCI vessel holder on all systems and to discard vessels in case any affected vessels have been loaded onto the system. For technical questions or concerns, please contact the Siemens Technical Solutions Center at 800-441-9250 for further assistance.
