Cook Medical Transseptal Needle and Transseptal Needle with Catheter
On October 8, 2021, Cook Medical issued a global, voluntary recall of the transseptal needle and the transseptal needle with catheter. This recall includes all unexpired lots for both of these products. The needles were recalled due to complaints of rust on the products. Use of affected products could result in increased procedural time and inflammatory reactions, including systemic reactions which may lead to permanent impairment or death. The FDA has not yet classified the recall. More Information.
Bryant Ranch Methocarbamol 500mg Tablets
Bryant Ranch Prepack is voluntarily recalling 1 lot of methocarbamol 500mg tablets because the bottles labeled as methocarbamol 500mg tablets have been found to contain methocarbamol 750mg tablets. If a patient takes a 750mg tablet of methocarbamol instead of the prescribed 500mg tablets, it potentially could result in Excessive Central Nervous System depression which may result in nausea, sedation, fainting, falls, seizure, coma, and death. Bryant Ranch Prepack has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall. More Information.
