BD recalls certain lots of BD Q-Syte Luer Access Devices and BD Nexiva Closed IV Catheter Systems

BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX) has voluntarily executed a product recall of certain lots of BD Q-Syte™ Luer Access Devices and BD Nexiva™ Closed IV Catheter Systems.  Use of the affected devices may cause an air embolism or leakage of blood and/or therapy, which may result in serious injury or death.  This field corrective action included notification to customers worldwide by letter. Neither the costs anticipated with the recall, nor the impact on BD's business, are expected to be material.

The BD Q-Syte Luer Access device is intended for use with other infusion therapy products in the administration of fluids into the intravenous system. BD Nexiva has been added to the scope of this recall that was first initiated on October 28, 2009.  The BD Nexiva product has two BD Q-Syte devices within the package that could potentially be subject to the manufacturing deviation previously referenced in the October 28, 2009 recall letter.

Patient safety and the quality and safety of our products are BD's first priorities. The recall was initiated on October 28, 2009 after BD received complaints due to air entry through the bottom disk of the septum. BD investigated and determined the root cause to be a manufacturing deviation. Product failures occurred on lots of BD Q-Syte and BD Nexiva units distributed from November 2008 through November 2009.  The root cause has been corrected and preventive measures, including additional inspections and preventive maintenance of the line, have been implemented.  

The approximately 2.8 million BD Q-Syte and 2.9 million BD Nexiva units containing 5 million BD Q-Syte devices that were recalled were distributed in the United States, Asia, Canada, Europe, Mexico, the Middle East, South Africa and South America.  

BD has notified the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other worldwide health agencies, as necessary, and is working with them to coordinate recall activities.  Clinicians or distributors with questions can contact BD at 1-800-453-4538, option 2, extension 2585, between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Mountain Standard Time, Monday-Friday, or dial directly at 1-801-565-2300, x2585 or x2860.

Adverse reactions or quality problems experienced with the use of this product may be reported to FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program either on line, by regular mail or by fax:
