Product Detail

Product Description Code Info Classification Reason for Recall Product Quantity Recall Number
Viscocel and Viscocel Plus. These products are intraocular fluid devices consisting of non-gaseous fluid intended to be introduced into the eye to aid performance of surgery, such as to maintain anterior chamber depth, preserve tissue integrity, protect tissue from surgical trauma, or function as a tamponade during retinal reattachment. All lots manufactured September 01, 2011 to September 19, 2013. Class I CLR Medicals International Inc., initiated a nationwide recall of Viscocel and Viscocel Plus, in response to FDA inspection findings of deficiencies in the Quality System Regulations for Medical Device Manufacturers, 21 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Part 820 and lack of Premarket Approval (PMA) for devices sold or distributed in domestic commerce. The Viscoelastic products, intended for human and animal use, have been determined to be a possible public health concern due to distribution in the US without FDA approval, which evaluates the safety and efficacy of the product, and violations of the QSR regulations related to sterility, and biocompatibility that may result in the release of contaminated products. 249,592 units Z-0531-2014
