If they observe any loose screws, sheared screws and/or elongated opening(s) around the screws, they are to immediately take the system out of service and contact the firm's service representative. Covidien's customers were all asked to inspect their inventories and to complete an 'Effectiveness Check Return Form' whether or not the product is defective.
