Action On July 30, 2007 Allez Spine notified all its field representatives and distributors via email of a potential for failure of the Size 8 Pedicle Screws when used in combination with the single piece locking nuts and instructed them to return all unused inventory of Size 8 Screws and the two piece Locking Nuts with saddle. This action was to be carried out to the retail level-hospital, clinic, lab, and physicians sold the product. The email also had an attachment of a list of expected frequently asked questions (FAQ) from surgeons and answers to help them respond. A second Notice to all users was sent by the recalling firm on Feb 29, 2008, to request follow-up of implanted units.
