Covidien recalls flush syringes
Covidien warns customers in the U.S. and Bermuda that some of its Monoject syringes were mislabeled and not properly sterilized, prompting the company to recall 14 lots of the device.
The issues affected 14 lots in shipments that went out to customers in the U.S. and Bermuda, the Mansfield, Mass.-based medical products giant said.
The problematic Monoject pre-fill syringes were filled with water and then never properly sterilized. Products labeled as either sodium chloride flush or heparin lock flush might also have mismatched labels between the syringe cap and other parts, according to Covidien.
