Baxter Recalls Lot of Sodium Chloride Irrigation After Insect Complaint

Feb. 25, 2016

Baxter International is voluntarily recalling one lot of its 0.9 percent sodium chloride irrigation following a customer complaint of particulate matter, which was found to be an insect.

The foreign material could result in complications — depending on where in the body the irrigation is used — such as an inflammatory reaction and life-threatening infections.

The recall covers product distributed in the U.S. between Nov. 12, 2015 and Jan. 11, 2016.

Baxter announced a recall last month of 11 lots of 0.9 percent sodium chloride injection due to complaints of leaking containers and particulate matter.
