DESIGN: Labeling Design
Action Zimmer sent out "Urgent Device Correction" letters dated 5/18/2010. The consignees were provided with new instructions for use. The letter informed users that the current pre-vacuum cycle of 3 to 18 minutes is not enough time to assure sterility between the lid-kit interface and could lead to cross contamination of multiple patients. The users were informed that a pre-vacuum time of 30 minutes was required to assure sterility.
