Manufacturer Narrative

This product is manufactured by an outside vendor. Our supplier for this item is (b)(4) it is sold under two different part numbers; 12840000 and 200a10. Investigation findings: quality control has pulled all of item 12840000 and 200a10 from the shelves at our distribution facility. Several of the units were covered with what appears to be mold. Other product items appeared to have moisture inside the package. This issue was also found in a new shipment that had not been received (not put into the computer system) or stocked on the shelf. As a result, we pulled the entire inventory and placed the product in quarantine. The 5 product samples for this quality issue were received from the customer and added to the quarantined items. The vendor was contacted and a scar (supplier corrective action request form) was sent for completion, along with photos of the issues found. Quality control did make an inquiry to the vendor if they required a sample for review, but was informed "if you haven't sent the samples already please don't. We pulled our inventory and see what the issue is". Per vendor instructions, our inventory of this product was pulled. The vendor's scar (supplier corrective action request) was received 11/07/2017. Root cause: sealed packaging of the components retained environmental moisture. Lack of climate control in warehouse area. Sealed packaging of the finished goods retained environmental moisture. During container shipment, humidity and heat led to mold formation. Corrective action: raw materials for the affected item to be stored in vented packages in climate and humidity controlled area. Desiccant/vents added to finished goods packaging. Finished goods to be stored in a temperature/humidity controlled environment prior to shipment. Increased inspection upon us arrival. Verification: assess packaging on other items produced for deroyal items to determine if other changes are needed. Verification: periodic inspection of stored raw materials by personnel. A 100% inspection of raw materials before production. Initial 100% inspection of finished goods received at us distribution center upon receipt for next 3 orders. Increased sampling on future orders. No further information is available at this time. We will provide a follow up report if additional information becomes available.
