Reason/Issue Small puncture marks that are not easily visible by eye have been found on the packaging of the MAJ-1606. This damage was caused by variations in the packaging process.

A sample of devices with these small puncture marks was sent by the manufacturer for bio-burden testing. This testing concluded that no bacterial contamination was detected from any of the adaptors sampled.

Both the manufacturer and Olympus have not received any complaints of injury associated with compromised sterile packaging, however, as a precaution Olympus is recalling the two affected lot numbers.
