  • Action
    Baxter telephoned the direct accounts starting on 6/21/07, informing them that functional verification testing may not have been performed on their Flo-Gard and/or Colleague infusion pumps before they were returned to them. Since Baxter has no evidence that this quality control testing was conducted on these pumps, the pumps may not function as designed. The accounts were requested to locate the affected pumps and take them out of service as soon as possible, and send them back to Baxter for the required functional verification testing. *** Baxter expanded the recall and telephoned the direct accounts starting on 7/30/07, informing them that the electrical safety testing may not have been performed on their Colleague infusion pumps before they were returned to them. Since Baxter has no evidence that this quality control testing was conducted on these pumps, the pumps may not function as designed. The accounts were requested to locate the affected pumps and take them out of service as soon as possible, and send them back to Baxter for the required electrical safety and all functional verification testing. Follow-up recall letters were sent to the accounts on 8/7/07 reiterating the telephone conversations and providing a list affected pump serial numbers to be removed from service and returned to Baxter for testing. They were also requested to report any malfunction or adverse event related to the Colleague or Flo-Gard Infusion Pumps to Baxter Corporate Product Surveillance at 1-800-437-5176. ****Recall 2 Extension******* Baxter expanded the recall for a second time via letter on 8/20/07 and telephone calls starting on 8/21/07, informing the direct accounts that Baxter's investigation found documentation inconsistencies by three more of their service technicians, representing the possibility of incomplete testing and/or documentation by these technicians who serviced Colleague infusion pumps at the account's facility.
