Event Description
It was reported that while restoring implant tubs in the distributorship, unsterile trauma nails were discovered. The inner sterile packaging was opened inside the wrapped outer box. No adverse events have been reported as a result of the malfunction. Attempts have been made and additional information on the reported event is unavailable.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
The complaint sample was evaluated and the reported event was confirmed through visual inspection. The returned packaging identified that the inner pouch showed one spot along the sealed area with a void. All other sealed areas were intact. The void made up less than fifty (50) percent of the total sealed area. The device history records were reviewed and no discrepancies were identified. The root cause is determined to be inadequate work procedures/instructions and distribution not being integrated into the company's quality management system. If any further information is found which would change or alter any conclusions or information, a supplemental will be filed accordingly. Zimmer biomet will continue to monitor for trends.
