Edwards Lifesciences (NYSE:EW) said a federal probe into its Vigilance I heart monitor, which it recalled in 2006, has been called off.

The U.S Attorney for Central California subpoenaed Irvine, Calif.-based Edwards in November 2010, seeking  "records relating to the Vigilance I Monitor model with software release 5.3 that was the subject of a voluntary field recall by the Company in June 2006."

The medical device company said at the time that it would cooperate with the probe. Now the feds have told the company that the investigation is over, according to a regulatory filing.
