Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
During a retrospective review of sterilization records, TriMed has determined that evidence of quarterly dose audits/verification required to comply with the regulations could not be found. Sterilization records indicate that all lots of staples were irradiated to at least the defined dose. There is a risk that this issue could result in patient infection if not properly sterilized.
