Baxter International is recalling one lot of IV solution over leakage, particulates and missing port protectors — the company’s eighth recall since December 2013 and the second in July.
The recalled lot was distributed nationwide between Jan. 22 and Feb. 12. Baxter says no adverse events have been reported.
The latest recall follows Baxter’s July 17 notice that it was recalling two lots of IV solution after insects were found in some of the product and an April recall of about 237,000 units. Seven of the eight recalls have involved particulates in sodium chloride solution.
Baxter did not return a request for comment by press time. View the recall notice at www.fdanews.com/08-03-15-baxter.pdf. — John Bechtel
