FDA Orders Recall of Colleague Infusion Pump
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), July 13, ordered Baxter Healthcare Corp. to recall all Colleague infusion pumps after determining deficiencies in the pumps would not be corrected in a reasonable timeframe. According to a proposed correction schedule submitted to the FDA, Baxter did not intend to begin correcting the pumps until May 2012.
The FDA has ordered Baxter to recall and destroy all Colleague infusion pumps in the United States and to provide customers with either a replacement infusion pump (other than the Colleague model) or a refund no later than July 13, 2012.
See the FDA final order for information about how to receive a refund or replacement pumps.
