FDA report that Hospira, Inc. have announced a recall of certain blood administrations sets


Intravenous products: FDA report “Hospira, Inc. announced a recall of certain blood sets. There have been reports from customers of instances in which the outer wall of blood bags were punctured with the piercing pin on certain Hospira blood sets during insertion of the pin into the blood bag. If the piercing pin on this product punctures the outer wall of a blood bag, it may result in spillage of the blood and blood products stored in the bag, resulting in a delay/interruption in therapy. Delay/interruption in therapy can potentially lead to significant injury or death. This issue has been identified as a contributing factor in one report of a patient death due to a delay/interruption in therapy.”
