Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Smiths Medical became aware that product returned to them under recall # Z-0800-06/ Z-0807-06 was inadvertently distributed to consignees after the recall was initiated 03/29/2006. The product was originally recalled because Locator Wand covers, which are supplied on the outside of PORT-A-CATH and P.A.S. PORT sterile trays, may have an insufficient seal and product sterility could be compromised.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action An Urgent Product Safety & Recall Notification, dated 09/27/06, was sent to customers via facsimile and phone calls were made. The letter describes the issue and customers are given 3 options to include: use only the sterile tray and discard the wand cover, remove and discard Locator-Wand Cover pouches and request replacement Locator-Wand Covers, or return the entire device for a credit or replacement.
