  • Acción
    Ortho Clinical Diagnostics (OCD) sent an Urgent Product Correction Notification letters dated May 6, 2013 and response forms to all affected customers. Ortho Clinical Diagnostics informed their customers of the issue and advised if they detect the smell of melting plastic or observe smoke originating from your VITROS¿ System, to immediately power down the system and contact OCD for assistance. They were also advised to consider performing the backup procedure more frequently to help prevent the loss of data on their Systems. In the near future, an OCD Field Engineer will contact customers who are affected and perform a Modification (MOD) procedure that will replace their potentially affected Wire Connector(s). Foreign affiliates were informed by email on May 6, 2013 of the issue and instructed to notify their customers of the issue and actions. OCD also found that this wire connector is commonly used in many types of computers (i.e., medical devices, personal computers, etc.). On 29 May 2013, OCD expanded their recall to incllude ORTHO Assay Software (OAS) Servers. As a precaution, OCD sent notifications to encompass all ORTHO¿ Assay Software (OAS) Servers that potentially contain this type of wire connector. The letters (Ref. CL13-154) were sent via US Priority Mail to all customers who were shipped an affected OAS Server. Ortho Clinical Diagnostics has requested that customers with any questions or in need of additional information, please call Customer Technical Services at 1-800-421-3311.
