Centurion is recalling the Centurion Convenience Kits containing Multi-Med Single Lumen Catheters” FDA (2016).
“Centurion is recalling the Centurion Convenience Kits containing Multi-Med Single Lumen Catheters. The catheters have a potential for excess material to remain at the tip of the catheter from the manufacturing process. If this occurs, the excess material may separate from the catheter during use and could enter the patient’s bloodstream. This can result in serious adverse health consequences such as the development of blood clots, embolism of the excess material to vital organs, or death” FDA (2016).
