Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The recall is being conducted as a precautionary measure due to out of specification results at the 18 month and 21 month time points (out of the 24 month licensed shelf life to expiration) for the percent thiol substitution during a Coseal Stability study. The parameter that is out of specification is an indicator of possible failure for the product to gel appropriately.
