Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The extension sets contain microbore female luers that may crack during use, resulting in leakage of medication or incomplete delivery of medication.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action Baxter sent Urgent Product Recall letters dated 8/3/05 to their customers, to the attention of the Director of Materials Management, via first class mail on the same date. The accounts were informed of the microbore female luers that may crack during use, resulting in the possible under delivery or incomplete delivery of medication. The accounts were instructed to examine their inventory for the affected lots of product, remove it from inventory and return it to Baxter for credit. Any questions were directed to the Center for One Baxter at 1-800-422-9837. Baxter extended the recall to include additional lots and product codes via letter dated 12/15/05. The letters referenced the 8/3/05 letter, including a copy of that letter, and listed the affected lots of sets. The instructions for return of the product remained the same as that described in the 8/3/05 letter.
Quantity in Commerce 13,824 sets
Distribution Nationwide, including Puerto Rico and American Samoa, and internationally to Canada, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, India, Mexico, Venezuela, Malaysia, East Timor and New Zealand.
