Action Baxter sent a Safety Alert letter on January 11, 2011 for the InfusO.R. Pump. Baxter expanded the scope of the recall to include the Mini-Infusers System and sent an Urgent Device Correction letter dated March 4, 2011, via First Class mail to all affected customers. The letters informed the customers that the Mini-Infusers use the same size battery and incorporate the same battery contact interface as the InfusOR pump, and that the same feature that inhibits electrical contact in over-the counter Energizer C size batteries may also be incorporated by other battery manufacturers. The customers were requested to verify that the InfusOR and Mini-Infuser will power-on before use; if the device does not power on, replace the batteries with a different brand of size C batteries and verify that the device will power-on before use; and to place a copy of the letter with each operator's manual for the InfusOR and Mini-Infuser System for future reference.
