The letter explains the problem identified, the impact, and actions required to be taken by customers. The letter instructs customers to inspect the waste bottle for signs of aging and deterioration. New bottles are opaque white in color. Signs of deterioration include: o Any color change to the bottle (yellow, orange or pink) o Cracking o Crazing (spider web cracking) Any defect that is not removed by routine cleaning is a sign of deterioration. It is important to routinely inspect the area nearest the handle and along all seams of the bottle. If upon inspection consignees detect any issues with their waste bottles, they were asked to contact Beckman Coulter Customer Service using the enclosed Replacement Order Form to obtain a new waste bottle, and keep this information should they require a replacement bottle in the future. Consignees were also asked to share this information with laboratory staff and retain the notification as part of laboratory Quality System documentation.
