Nonconforming Material/Component
Action ConMed sent an Urgent Medical Device Recall letter dated May 8, 2014, to all affected customers. The letter identified the product the problem and the action needed to be taken by the customer. Corrective Action: All returned devices will be received into the facility and the lot number and quantity recorded on to an electronic spreadsheet. The returned product will then be stored in a secure quarantined area. At this time, management has not determined as to how the devices will be dispositioned. A protocol(s) will be written to address the destruction of the returned devices. This will be submitted to NYK-DO for approval prior to any action being taken with the returned devices. CAPA 153136 was opened. Fixtures were revised to allow for placement of the foil/gel substrate from the bottom of the foam. This is to maintain consistent dimensions on the product and not allow for float/movement of the substrate from being offset. For further questions please call (315) 624-3024 or fax to (315) 624-3030.
