Medical device maker Stryker (NYSE:SYK) issued a recall for its Neptune Rover waste management systems after reports of serious injuries that resulted in 1 patient death.

Stryker originally issued the recall in June, but expanded the motion to include additional models of the Neptune system after the FDA deemed the devices adulterated under U.S. law.
