Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The current Argyle UVC Insertion Tray does not include a specific IFU to operate the Safety Scalpel N11. The Safety Scalpel N11 features a permanent locking feature that will not allow the clinician to unlock the scalpel once the safety shield is closed and pushed forward into a locked position may result in a delay treatment/therapy, which could ultimately result in death.
