  • Causa
    An anomaly has been identified with the al07289000 rectal retractor stainless steel. the rectal retractors have shown evidence that contaminates or fluids may enter into the center of the rectal retractor paddle through the cross pins or bottom rod areas. the rectal retractor instruments have been identified to potentially have contaminating materials present after clinical use that cannot be removed by the instructed cleaning disinfecting and sterilization method. at this time it appears that the design of the paddle component is allowing for ingress and retention of bodily fluids or cleaning reagents during their clinical use and during their reprocessing for re-use. this issue is an internal finding - therefore no misadministration or serious deterioration in the state of health was reported. there have been no reports of this issue that have occurred in canada or within the eea member states.
