Reason/Issue Internal testing has revealed the potential for small holes the size of a pin to develop in the pouches of the sterile canisters. If these small holes occur and the canister is used in a sterile field, there is a potential for contamination.

To date, there have been no complaints regarding damaged packaging or reports of any patient injuries or complications due to potentially non-sterile canisters.
