Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Baxter Healthcare Corporation is issuing a voluntary product recall for several lots of Phoenix Dialysis Machine Preventive Maintenance Kits due to incorrect silicone straight connectors components packaged in these kits. During Preventive Maintenance, the two silicone connectors must be installed in the Phoenix mass-balance section of hydraulic circuit only if the Phoenix machine has already been modified with "CONN. IMPROVING RETR. KIT" (Code SP00721). Installation of these connectors in machines modified with SP00721 may result in fluid leaks during dialysis treatment. These Preventive Maintenance Kits include the FILTER sub-group, which contains the silicone straight connectors that are larger than expected.
