Action SIEMENS issued a filed correction in the form of a "Customer Safety Advisory Notification" initiated on September 29, 2010 and mailed to customers by Federal Express on the same day. The notification described the product, problem and actions to be taken by the customers. The customers were instructed to examine the 4Z1c transducer prior to use (Note: if transducer does not show a blister on its front face or does not feel unusually when it is safe for use); to immediately discontinue use and contact their local Siemens representative to get issue resolved, if the transducers developed a hot spot that exhibits a visible blister on the patient contact surface and feels hot to the touch during operation, and to pass this notice on to all those within their organization who need to be aware.
