Action Boston Scientific issued an Urgent Medical Device Recall - Immediate Action Required notification to hospitals and distributors dated July 31, 2009 via Federal Express and requested the immediate discontinued use and segregation of Recall product for return and Complete and return the Reply Verification Tracking Form. An email was sent to Physicians to provide the recall information. Boston Scientific issued a Clarification letter dated August 6, 2009 via Federal Express as a follow-up to the July 31, 2009 Recall letter for the following reason: customers may remove product from the outer box and store it on the inventory shelf by the inner package only. If this is a practice at the facility, a customer must consider both the inner and outer packaging product codes when searching for affected recalled product as the UPN numbers on the inner and outer labeling are different. A reply verification tracking form for customers was provided in case they have located any additional product to return.
