Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The 30-day onboard storage information is not included in the barcode labels for these two lots. As a result, the ARCHITECT system software is unable to track how long a reagent kit has been stored onboard the ARCHITECT instrument.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action Abbott affiliates in Canada, Germany and Australia were e-mailed copies of the recall letter on 3/8/06 for translation where needed and dissemination to their accounts receiving the suspect lots. The end users were advised that the 30-day onboard storage information is not included in the barcode for the two lots. As a result the ARCHITECT system software is unable to track how long the reagent kit has been stored onboard. The accounts were instructed to manually track the onboard storage time for the two lots, and discard the kits after 30 days of onboard storage.
Quantity in Commerce 135 kits
Distribution Canada, Germany and Australia
