FDA Medical Device Recalls

The skin-prep wipes were recalled by the manufacturer due to the potential for bacterial contamination. Surgical patients, and patients who are immuno-compromised, such as those with diabetes, cancer, and certain other chronic diseases, may be at potential risk for infection. This may cause serious adverse health consequences or death.
