    In a letter dated March 19, 2010 Boston Scientific informed consignees that it determined that certain Sony battery packs installed in Toshiba portable computers can overheat, posing fire hazard to customers, and telling them that they may be in possession of an affected product. They were advised that a Boston Scientific representative will contact them to arrange for an inspection of the Clinician Programmer (SC-7150-4). Until they have determined if the battery pack is affected, consignees were told they can only use their Toshiba portable computer with the original AC adapter power cord supplied with that computer, and were asked to remove the battery pack until its status is determined. Included with the letter was a Reply Verification Tracking Form which consignees were asked to complete the form following the instructions on the form and return to Boston Scientific in the enclosed postage paid return envelope or fax it to (877) 856-3546 by March 31, 2010. If they experience any issues they were told to cease using the Clinician Programmer and contact Boston Scientific's 24-hour Patient Care Hotline at (866) 360-4747. Customers can also contact the Field Action team by phone at (866) 684-7504 or by fax at (877) 856-3546 if they had any questions.

  • Comentario del fabricante
    “We take a patient-first approach to assessing the applicability of every recall and communicate to regulatory bodies in all geographies where the recalled device is sold,” Boston Scientific said in a statement to ICIJ. “We have coordinated several recalls across many countries in a timely manner,” the company said, adding that it complies with all national laws, which can often vary and require different processes for reporting information or taking action on recalls. The company said it uses a rigorous and uniform process to take action on recalls and that “when we initiate a field action (e.g. recall, safety alert), every customer who has received an affected product receives a communication that includes a letter for the physician.”
