Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
If the manifolds are connected in series, there may be a risk of the manifolds loosening or disconnecting at the luer connection between them.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action Baxter sent an "Urgent Device Correction" letter dated October 20, 2010, via first class mail to the direct accounts, to the attention of the Director of Nursing and the Director of Materials Management, informing them that there may be a risk of the manifolds loosening or disconnecting at the luer connection between them. The loosening or disconnection can result in an interruption of therapy, potentially resulting in patient injury and death. The accounts were requested to place the notification where the inventory of affected product is dispensed, so that users are made aware of the procedures to follow: "If these devices are connected in series, and the luer connector is tightened, do not twist the manifolds. This may lead to loosening or disconnection, which may cause a leak. Additionally, Baxter recommends checking all connections before starting and during infusion therapy." The accounts were requested to complete the attached customer reply form confirming their receipt of the letter and fax it to Baxter at the number provided on the form. Dealers, wholesalers and distributors were requested to notify their customers of this action so they can comply with the procedures listed above. Any questions regarding the communication were directed to The Center for One Baxter at 1-800-422-9837 during the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm CST.
