Action IFlow sent the customer notification letter on May 29, 2013, to 28 customers via FedEx along with a copy of the Service Guide to inform customers of the issue that can cause the Sting Ray to disconnect from the Catheter and how to prevent this problem from occuring. Customers are informed that in certain circumstances, ultrasound gel on the catheters significantly reduces the amount of force required to pull the catheter out of the Stingray connector. The In Service Guide clarifies that the method of catheter securement. It also instructs that wiping off any excess ultrasound gel from the catheter prior to inserting it into the Stingray connector will help with connecting the catheter to the Stingray connector. Customers are instructed that there is no action required for the I Flow ON Q Pain Relief System and ON Q T Bloc. The recall letter is only to provide further instructions on successful set up of the SPIROL catheter with the Stingray Connector included in the ON-Q T-bloc trays. Customers with any questions are instructed to call IFlow Customer service at (800) 448-3569 or IFlow 24 hr Tech support at (800) 444-2728. On June 1, 2012, an I-Flow sales representative removed the catheters and connectors from the one consignee/customers. For questions regarding this recall call 949-206-2700.
