  • Causa
    Through a review of packaging, stryker has identified that the seal integrity of the pouch may be compromised. more specifically, there is a potential that the sterile pouch may not be sealed at one end due to a manufacturing error. a missing seal could potentially lead to unsterile product. risk mitigating factors include that the non-conformance is obvious to the user. surgical guidelines outline inspection of the sterile barrier (seal) for sterile packed medical devices prior to use. the pouch itself shows a note: “contents sterile unless this package has been damaged or opened.” the secondary packaging is a (plastic) clear tube with silicone caps at both ends. while not validated as a sterile barrier, it does provide additional protection to the enclosed pouch package configuration. no injury or harm has been reported regarding this issue.
