Action International Medsurg Connection recalled the Esmark Bandages from Cardinal Health by telephone call on 8/16/06 and follow-up letter dated 8/24/06. The account was informed that some of the product may not have been sterilized even though it was labeled as sterile, and was requested to cease distribution of the affected lots, return the product to IMC and notify their customers to the retail level.

Hospitals were requested to contact Cardinal Customer Service at 800-964-5227 to arrange for product return and credit or replacement of all product. All other customers were directed to call 1-888-444-5440 for product return and replacement.
