Below is an excellent video published by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which warns of Serratia marcescens infections among users of Sierra Pre-filled and B. Braun Heparin syringes.
Here is an alert about a nationwide recall of all heparin and normal saline flushes manufactured by AM2 PAT, Inc. These pre-filled syringes are distributed under two brand names: Sierra Pre-filled and B. Braun.
Some of the syringes have been found to be contaminated with Serratia marcescens, which has caused patient infections that can be serious and even fatal.
All sizes and strengths of these heparin and saline flushes are being recalled. If you have any of these syringes, stop using them immediately. Quarantine them and return them to your distributor. For questions, contact the company at 919-552-9689.
