Product Letter From Baxter Receives FDA Severe Urgency Level

Comments Off

In January Baxter International issued a warning letter to customers regarding its Colleague Volumetric Infusion pumps. The pumps are used to deliver intravenous fluids and medicine to patients in hospitals. The Baxter letter warned that the Colleague pumps could fail and overheat. Failure codes in the products could cause the possible shutdown of the pumps. The FDA gave Baxter’s warning letter its most severe level of urgency, because the shutdown of the pump is potentially fatal.
