Recall Action Commencement Date 27/06/2017
Responsible Entity Olympus Australia Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue The manufacturer, Olympus Winter & Ibe have identified specific item codes of Sealing Caps are missing information on the packaging that identifies the product as single-use and the sterility status of the Sealing Caps. These items are supplied unsterile and intended for single-use only following sterilisation. Since there is no indication for single-use on the label it may be interpreted that the sealing cap can be reused. To date, Olympus has not received any reports regarding adverse events or patient injury relating to this issue.
Recall Action Recall
Recall Action Instructions Olympus is advising users to inspect their inventory for the affected Sealing caps and discard. Olympus will provide corrected replacement stock.
