  • Action
    Baxter sent the 8/17/05 Urgent Product Recall letter to all Baxter 6060E Infusion Pump customers to inform them of a software anomaly present in software versions 3.00 and higher, which allows the pump to overinfuse in the Auto-Ramp mode. The end users were also informed that these epidural pumps, identified by the yellow housing, can no longer be supported due to a lack of availability of spare parts and Baxter is unable to replace the software with an alternate version. As a result, Baxter requested the accounts to remove the pumps from service and return them to Baxter. The accounts were requested to call Baxter''s Medication Delivery Services at 1-800-843-7867 to arrange for the return of the units and replacement with 6060 Multi-Therapy Infusion Pumps.
