    Two complaints were received from customers that bags labelled as containing softpac c295 were found in boxes labelled as containing softpac c299. after investigation, baxter determined that the bags labelled as containing softpac c295 actually contained softpac c299 solution. the softpac c295 and c299 formulations have the same composition except for the calcium (ca+) and chloride (cl-) content. the labelling error may lead to electrolyte imbalances, under circumstances of repetitive use of mislabelled product. no reports of related adverse events have been received by baxter.
