The accounts were informed of the microbore female luers that may crack during use, resulting in the possible under delivery or incomplete delivery of medication. The accounts were instructed to examine their inventory for the affected lots of product, remove it from inventory and return it to Baxter for credit. Any questions were directed to the Center for One Baxter at 1-800-422-9837. Baxter extended the recall to include additional lots and product codes via letter dated 12/15/05. The letters referenced the 8/3/05 letter, including a copy of that letter, and listed the affected lots of sets. The instructions for return of the product remained the same as that described in the 8/3/05 letter.
