Recall Action Classification Class I
Recall Action Commencement Date 26/09/2019
Responsible Entity Baxter Healthcare Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue Baxter Healthcare previously issued a product recall for certain lot numbers of the EXACTAMIX Empty EVA Bags (TGA reference RC-2019-RN-00291-1 and RC-2018-RN-01333-1) due to the potential ability to leak once used for compounding. Baxter is expanding this recall to include additional lot numbers.

An undetected leak in the compounded IV solution bag may allow for microbial contamination of the solution which may lead to a bloodstream infection, or an air embolism caused by air entering the fluid path.

To date, there have been no reports of serious injuries associated with this issue.
