Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
There is a potential risk of device contamination and patient infection associated with the device because of the potential for organisms (including Nontuberculous mycobacteria NTM) to grow in the water systems of any heater-cooler device, and contaminated water from any heater-cooler device has the potential to aerosolize into the operating room during surgery which could lead to patient infection.
