FDA Class I Recall: B. Braun addEASE Binary Connector Injury Hazard
November 30, 2010 – The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) today alerted the public of a Class I Recall of the B. Braun addEASE Binary Connector admixture delivery system. The addEASE is used to transfer fluid between a partial additive bag (PAB) and a drug vial. According to the FDA report, when the addEASE binary connector is inserted into a PAB stopper, fragments of the stopper may enter the bag, resulting in a small amount of visible particles in the solution.
How can this defect cause injuries?
The stopper particles can potentially enter a patient’s body and lead to serious adverse health consequences such as pulmonary embolism, stroke, or heart attack. Sadly, these issues could result in serious injury or death.
If you think you may have been affected by this recall, get the facts.
