Action On 3/24/2008, the firm issued separate URGENT: PRODUCT RECALL NOTIFICATIONs sent via certified mail to their distributor and medical customers. Both recall notifications inform the customers of this labeling error and ask that the customers: 1) check their inventories for the presence of the suspect product; 2) complete and return the attached 'Product Recall Notification Response Form'; and 3) make arrangements to return any unused affected product to the recalling firm in exchange for a credit or replacement product. In addition, the distributors are asked to either provide the recalling firm with a list of their sub-account customers so that Smith Medical can contact the enduser customers and notify them of the recall, or as an alternative measure, the distributor can notify their branches and customers directly, via their own certified letter.
