FDA: Class I recall of Avid Medical convenience kits

Editor's Note

The Food and Drug Administration on June 25 identified the recall by Avid Medical of its convenience kits for medical-surgical procedures as Class I, the most serious.

The company is recalling those kits that contain BD/Carefusion’s Chloraprep 3 mL applicator because of the risk of contamination of the applicator with the fungus Aspergillus penicillioides.

Recalled kits include:

  • Adult Chest Tube Tray
  • Fistula On-Off Kit
  • Fistula (On/Off All in One bag)
  • Dialysis Access.

Distribution dates for the kits were May 9, 2019-March 19, 2021.

There have been no deaths, complaints, or injuries reported in relation to this issue.
