Airborne Particles Could Lead to Serious Adverse Health Consequences
Bayer is recalling Medrad Intego PET Infusion System Source Administration Sets because the sets may produce particulate matter (solid and liquid particles found in the air) in the medicine vials. The particulates are potentially created when the tip of the needle pushes through the rubber top of the vial. According to a safety alert issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), “particulate matter could enter into the patient and cause serious adverse health consequences, including infection, damage of tissue and death.” Recalled Source Administration Sets were distributed between October 9, 2008, and October 11, 2016. Over 86,000 sets were recalled nationwide in the United States.
Those who may be affected include health care providers using the devices as well as all patient groups undergoing nuclear medicine diagnostic procedures involving Source Administration Sets with the Medrad Intego PET Infusion System.
The recall was originally initiated on November 7, 2016, when Bayer sent an urgent medical device field safety corrective action notice to all affected customers. The notice asked that customers immediately discontinue using the devices and to quarantine any unused affected product. Likewise, patients are encouraged to complete the response form indicating whether or not they have the affected product and if they will either retain the quarantined devices until they receive the inline filter or return the units to Bayer.
How a Bayer Medrad Intego Recall Lawyer Can Help
Medical device makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their devices, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a device maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
People injured by a defective infusion administration set may be eligible to recover money for:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
The families of those killed may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
