This contamination results in 10 FISH signals in each normal cell (4 SO, 4 SG, 2 SA) rather than the expected 6 FISH signals in each normal cell (2 SO, 2 SG, 2 SA). The customers were advised that lot 80178 was also being included in the recall, and were requested to review the information carefully and assess the risk to their patient population; discontinue and destroy any unused product immediately; complete and return the enclosed reply form; review the information with laboratory personnel; and communicate the information to health care providers served in cases where the affected product were used and reported.
