FDA Labels Multi-Med Needle Recall Class I
October 12, 2010
Multi-Med has expanded a previous recall to include all Huber needles manufactured by the company. The expanded recall affects all Huber needles and Multi-Med products containing Huber needles distributed from June 12, 2005, to May 28, 2010. The FDA has labeled the recall Class I. Huber needles are safety needles used to access vascular ports implanted under patients’ skin. A coring needle may damage the port, leading to diminished function of the port or infection, potentially resulting in death.
