    ASP will send an Urgent Medical Device Correction letter to all affected customers on January 23rd, 2012. The letter describes the product, problem and the actions to be taken.

The letter instructed customers to read the "Issue Description" and "Recommendations" sections in the letter, pass on the notice with any staff that work with or around the STERRAD 200, and maintain awareness of this communication until ASP has serviced the system. Also, a list of FAQ was provided. The letter states that ASP will replace, free of charge, the vacuum pumps on all STERRAD 200 Systems that have exceeded the pump manufacturer's recommended service interval.
