  • Causa
    There is a possibility that 2 units of c3f8 (lot 15052502) have been incorrectly packaged in sf6 boxes. the product codes for these items are as-c3f8 and as-sf6 respectively. however, the box label, the blister label, the patient labels and the canister would be properly labelled as c3f8. there is a remote risk that the user may not identify the mislabelling before use, and incorrectly use the c3f8 gas at a concentration usually used for the sf6, which would be a maximum of 20% instead of 12%.
