Action An email communication titled "URGENT: FIELD SAFETY NOTICE" was distributed by email to customers on 02/09/2022 that informs customers of a recall of DARCO Non-Locking Screw OD:2.7 mm L: 26mm, Lot No. 11012187061566009. These products were distributed from December 2015 to January 2018. The firm identified the reason for recall as the product being incorrectly labeled with a manufacturing date of 2015-12-16 and an expiration date of 2023-12-14, when the actual manufacturing date is 2010-11-01 and actual expiration date is 2018-11-01. Due to the incorrect labeling of manufacturing and expiration dates on this product, product still in stock may not be sterile and/or the sterile barrier packaging containing these devices may no longer meet sterility requirements. The recalling firm asks that customers inform individuals within the organization who need to know of this recall, immediately check stock and operating rooms for recalled devices, quarantine any affected devices, and complete the required response form within 7 calendar days of receipt of the recall notice. Completed forms are to be sent via email to memphis.fieldaction@stryker.com by 02/15/2022. Additional action required of customers is that they inform Stryker of any devices further distributed and any adverse events reported to your organization involving recalled product.
