Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The Micromix compounder may have ingredient delivery outside of the stated accuracy limits if the Vlier pin is not properly adjusted
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action Baxter began telephoning their customers on 4/26/04, advising them that an improperly adjusted Vlier pin could result in an ingredient delivery outside of stated accuracy limits. The accounts were requested to immediately stop using the Micromix Compounder and return the device to Baxter, and to evaluate all TPN formualtions that have been compounded but not administered to determine if any ingredients were delivered at a programmed volume of less than 1 mL. The account was advised to discard those solutions and recompound them using manual techniques. Follow-up recall letters were faxed to the accounts on the same date, reiterating the telephone calls. Baxter sent second recall letters dated 2/16/05 to the 15 customers who had not yet returned their Micromix Compounder as of 2/16/05, along with a copy of the 4/26/04 recall letter. The customers were informed of the new issue with the Micromix Compounder not recognizing decimal points for delivery volumes below 1 mL, and were again requested to return the Micromix Compounder and the handheld keypad to Baxter so that they may be corrected when the Micromix is reintroduced the market.
