Covidien Monoject Prefill Flush Syringes: Recall
MedSun: Newsletter #88, September 2013

FDA MedWatch Safety Alert

Covidien announced that it has initiated a voluntary recall of certain lots of Monoject prefill flush syringes. This recall is being conducted due to the risk that a number of the syringes were filled with water but not subjected to the autoclave sterilization process. These products are labeled as either sodium chloride flush or heparin lock flush. Some of these syringes have the mismatched syringe tip cap, syringe label, filled volume and wrapper.
