FDA: Metrix Company recalls certain lots of empty flexible IV bags

By: Judy Mathias

Editor's Note

The Food & Drug Administration on September 10 posted the recall by the Metrix Company of Dubuque, Iowa, of specific lots of its empty IV flexible containers (bags) marketed under the Metrix Secure EVA Dual Chamber and Baxter ExactaMix names.

The recall was initiated because of the potential for leaking of the IV bag at the chamber divider rod, which could result in a serious patient infection.
