Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The weld that connects the electrode to the active rod was separated. This connection is critical to the proper function of these devices. If the weld is separated, the product will not deliver energy to the jaws, resulting in the potential for a cut/transection without a seal. Ethicon Endo-Surgery identified this issue during a routine finished goods quality inspection.
FDA Determined
