The letter described the product, problem and actions to be taken. The customers were instructed to locate the affected pumps, remove from service and return to Baxter for inspection as soon as possible. If GLYPTOL is found to be missing, recalibration will be performed and GLYPTOL will be applied per requirement before returning the pumps back to the customer at no cost. The customer was instructed to complete and sign the attached customer reply form. The letter states that if the COLLEAGUE Pumps were distributed to other facilities, please forward communication to the pump owner as appropriate.
