  • Acción
    Hospira sent letters dated 1/3/08 to the immediate recipients of the product via FedEx overnight letter on the same date. The letters informed the accounts of the reports of independent changes in drug concentration while editing a saved formulation using the Hospira LifeCare PCA Label Utility Software CD that was provided to some customers in a Hospira MedNet Drug Library Creation Team Introductory Kit-LifeCare PCA kit. The accounts were requested to remove the utility from any PC in their facility on which it is currently installed, destroy the CD and sign and return the enclosed removal verification form verifying that they have removed the software from their system. The letter listed commercially available software packages that the account could validate and implement in their facility. Any questions concerning the utility software withdrawal were directed to Hospira at 1-800-241-4002, option 4, then option 1.
