  • Causa
    Bard medical division (bmd) has confirmed that lot ngar0462 is incorrectly identified as 317-09 (large kit) rather than 317-07 (medium kit) on the product (shelf) box. specifically, the shelf box has a black tick mark in the catalogue marked 317-09 instead of 317-07. the shelf box label with barcode and the pouch label is correctly identified as 317-07 and lot number ngar0462. this mislabelling could potentially result in a slight delay in therapy but is not associated with long term or residual clinical consequences.
  • Acción
    Bard Australia is requesting that following an inspection of stock on hand, customers should cross out the incorrectly marked line and tick the correct box “317-07”. The Recall for Product Correction does not require affected stock to be returned. Affected stock can remain on your shelves.
