FDA report recall of LifeCare Flexible Intravenous Solutions


FDA report “Hospira, Inc. announced the voluntary recall of certain lots of several products in its LifeCare line of flexible intravenous solutions due to the potential for leakage. The issue was identified during re-inspection of a manufactured product lot in which a single puncture mark was identified going through the overwrap and primary container. The puncture in the primary container may result in leakage that is difficult to detect.”

“Leakage may result in an open system, which has the potential for contamination, compromised sterility, drug waste, spillage, inadequate or inconsistent solution/medication dosing, and/or delay in therapy, all of which may require medical intervention. Hazardous topical exposure may occur if a hazardous drug is added to the flexible container. To date there have been no reports of adverse events associated with this issue for the impacted lots.”
