MedSun: Newsletter #47, April 2010

FDA MedWatch Safety Alert

Teleflex Incorporated notified healthcare professionals of the recall of all lots of Arrow Select IV Tubing Sets, accessories, and certain lots of arterial embolectomy catheters because it has been determined that product sterility cannot be guaranteed. Testing revealed pin holes in some of the pouches in which the products are packaged, and if product sterility has been compromised, there is a potential for infection, which could lead to serious injury or death.
