    Infusion Pump - Product Code FRN
  • Reason
    The air in line (ail) test was not properly performed by the service technician at the service center.
  • Action
    Baxter telephoned the two customers on December 1, 2010, informing them that that a post repair test was not performed correctly on their Colleague pumps (serial numbers 12070599CC and 17086323CP) during the last service. As a result, the device Air Sensor may not function as designed and could lead to undetected air in the IV line. Baxter wants to ensure that the devices are properly tested, safe and effective. Baxter requested that they locate the pumps and remove them from use as soon as possible. Baxter will then send a shipping container for retrieval, reinspection and return of the device back to the customer at no cost. *** Baxter expanded the recall to include twelve additional pumps on June 22, 2011 by telephone calls to the affected accounts. The recall strategy remains the same as the December 1, 2010 instructions. ****
