Reason/Issue Internal investigation by the manufacturer has identified that there is the possibility that one section of the outer package Tyvek seal for the Achillon Suture System may not remain completely sealed if not used within its shelf-life of 5 years. The section of the seal affected is adjacent to the finger-lift used to open the outer blister and were it to occur the sterility assurance of the exterior surface of the inner package may be compromised. To date, no instances have been reported.
