Action Hospira sent an URGENT MEDICAL DEVICE RECALL letter dated January 24, 2014, to all affected customers via traceable UPS. The letters included instructions for recipients to: inspect the door roller assemblies; if a door roller or pin appears loose, broken or missing, remove the device from clinical service until the door assembly is replaced with a corrected door assembly and contact Hospira at 800-441-4100 (Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM CST) to report the issue. All devices requiring repair will be serviced and replaced with the existing design door and/or pin. Hospira is in the process of designing a metal door roller pin to replace the plastic on currently available on the Plum XL and once that design is complete, any door roller/pin serviced on a Plum XL will be replaced with the new metal design. Recipients are further instructed to: inform potential users in their organization of the recall notification; complete the attached reply form and return it to the fax number or e-mail address on the form; and if the pumps were further distributed, to notify the accounts that received the devices and ask them to contact Stericycle at 877-597-9581 (Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST) to receive a reply form. The URGENT MEDICAL DEVICE RECALL letter also reports that Hospira is in the process of retiring the Plum LifeCare 5000 and Plum XL families of infusion devices as noted in the IMPORTANT PLUM INFUSION PUMP DISCONTINUATION AND TRANSITION NOTICE issued May 1, 2013.
