  • Causa
    The manufacturer has advised that during printing an operator error occurred where the foil used as the primary packaging for coban 2 shows "coban 2 lite" as the product name. the compression bandage, the outer carton packaging, the corresponding instructions for use as well as the colour coding (purple for coban 2) are correct. if coban 2 is used (rather than coban 2 lite) for a patient requiring moderate compression, a reduced blood circulation in the extremity is a possible consequence. this could lead to local necrosis or complete ischemia of the lower leg.
  • Acción
    3M Australia is advising users to inspect stock and quarantine the affected batch prior to returning to 3M.
