Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Packs including 5 laparotomy sponges may contain incorrect product with a blue loop, X-ray detectable feature, and ethylene oxide treatment; however, this incorrect product wasn't steam pre-treated prior to sterilization, and has no RF tag, which if non-sterile, may lead to infection, tissue trauma, and sepsis, and if in the scannable area, would lead a "CLEAR" display.
