  • Causa
    Covidien (now medtronic) is conducting a recall of the trellis 6 and trellis 8 peripheral infusion systems due to potential for a sterility breach of the outer packaging or pouch material of all lots manufactured. a breach of the outer pouch may compromise the outside surface sterility of the inner pouch and does not directly affect the sterility of the device components within the inner pouch. this potential for a sterile breach in the outer pouch material was discovered during standard internal packaging tests. the breach in the pouch barrier is likely not detectable by visual inspection of the product. covidien has identified possible causes for the pouch damage and has taken actions to prevent distribution of product that may be affected by this issue.Covidien has received no complaints and is not aware of any patient injury or death related to the issue.
