Editor's Note

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on December 16 identified the recall by Teleflex and Arrow International, LLC, of its Arrow MAC Two-Lumen Central Venous Access Kits and Arrow Pressure Injectable Arrowg+ard Blue Plus Three-Lumen Central Venous Catheter (CVC) Kits as Class I, the most serious.

The recall was initiated because of the risk of a cross-lumen leak caused by inadequate connections between the top and bottom housings of the Micro Clave Clear Connectors included in the kits.

No injuries or deaths related to this issue have been reported. Distribution dates were March 8, 2022, to May 13, 2022.
