  • Causa
    During a shelf life study, it was found that particular lots of product failed a dye penetration test demonstrating a deficient seam in the sterile packaging. the seams of the pouches made by one supplier were confirmed to be within specification and do not exhibit any non-conformance. the in-house made cross seam was confirmed to be manufactured out of specification. thus these lots have been deemed as having potentially insufficient packaging integrity and therefore regarded to be unsterile.
