Reason/Issue Customers have reported that on rare occasions, the Devon Light Glove may split upon application to the Devon Light Handle Adapter. Some of the reported splits resulted from difficult application of the Light Glove to the Handle Adapter. More recently, clinicians have reported finding splits in the Light Glove following surgery completion, where no difficulty in application of the Light Glove was encountered or finding splits directly out of the package. A split in the Light Glove causes a breach in the sterile field and can increase the potential for infection. There have been two reports in which splits were found at the conclusion of surgery.
Recall Action Recall for Product Correction
Recall Action Instructions Medline is advising users to remove and discard the Covidien Light Glove from the procedure pack at the time of surgery preparation.
