“Cardinal Health is recalling some of its syringes branded as “Cardinal Health Monoject syringes.” These new syringes differ from the previously branded “Covidien Monoject syringes” as they have different dimensions.
The affected Cardinal Health Monoject syringes should not be used with syringe pumps. The dimensional changes made to the affected Cardinal Health Monoject syringes when used with syringe pumps may result in pump performance issues such as overdose, underdose, delay in therapy, and delays in occlusion alarms.
The FDA has identified this as a Class I recall, the most serious type of recall. Use of these devices may cause serious injuries or death.”
