    An "URGENT CUSTOMER NOTIFICATION" was sent via UPS to customers. The notification letter described the product, problem and action to be taken. The letter alerted customers that the firm had recently manufactured identified lots of BACTEC(tm) Blood Culture Media with a new label containing a red line which should not be used as an accurate indication for blood draw volume. The firm also advised that the manufacturer is working to build stock with a revised label, but all of the identified lots distributed had passed testing and release criteria and will continue to perform as expected when used as instructions indicate. The customers are being urged to pay close attention to their BACTEC blood collection procedure until they receive bottles with the revised labels. Drawing too much blood may contribute to false negative or false positive results. The customer is being ask to communicate this information to all specimen collection sites within their facility.
