  • Causa
    Zimmer gmbh conducted an internal packaging review in accordance with current packaging testing standards. during this evaluation, it was identified that a subset of the above referenced products require additional testing to ensure that the packs meet the established requirements. cephalomedullary rods are packaged in a double sterile barrier package, which includes placing the product in a protective bag and then into two sterile barrier trays (internal and external). in approximately 5% of the samples tested, the outer tray was compromised, but there were no records suggesting that the sterility of the inner tray was affected. the manufacturer has received no complaints alleging compromised packaging. possibly affected devices were distributed from december 2009 to july 2015. in the event of any damage to the carton and / or the inner tray, it is very likely to be detected prior to surgery. the package leaflet (instructions for use) supplied with the device or contains a section on sterility where it instructs the user to inspect the packaging and not to use the device if any seal or cavity is damaged. therefore, all affected products must be visually inspected for damage, and returned when damages are noticed.
