  • Acción
    Consignees were notified via an Urgent Safety Information letter starting 02/27/2009. The Recall Notice asks customers to visually inspect the ILED covers for cracks and in particular to focus on the corners. If cracking is visible they are asked to remedy by taping with a clear tape over the cracks and report it to TRUMPF Medical Systems, Inc. immediately. TRUMPF will be replacing all covers with a newly designed and tested cover. Original priority in the United States will be set to start with the oldest units affected. If TRUMPF receives notification that cracking does exist then that facility will rise to the highest priority. Additionally, TRUMPF will issue a new approved cleaning and disinfection instruction, since investigations have shown that the cracking is significantly influenced by the use of certain disinfectants containing alcohol. The operator manual previously stated to avoid using alcohol-based cleaners on some parts of the ILED, but after reviewing this it was determined that it was not clearly stated to avoid use on the covers.
