Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
St. Jude Medical has initiated a voluntary recall of two lots of Fast-Cath Hemostasis Introducers-reorder number 406709, lot number 4219 and reorder number 406702, lot number 6372. They discovered that the product lots could contain some items which have been mis-labeled with the incorrect French size. In one case, the pouch label does not correctly identify the content of the pouch. In another case, the carton label is incorrect. The pouch label indicated that the product was 4F catheter, but the contents of the pouch may be a 7F catheter. St. Jude Medical has not received any reports of injuries resulting from this mis-labeling.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Error in labeling
