Reason/Issue Becton Dickinson (BD) has identified punctures in the blister packaging detected during the packaging process for specific lots of Plastic Cannula – 11 gauge.
A breach in the sterile barrier has the potential to render the device non-sterile. It is possible end users may not detect the pin holes, thus utilising impacted product clinically. This could result in harm to patients especially when immunocompromised.

In association with this recall, BD has decided to discontinue Catalogue Number: 9391-0200.

To date, BD is not aware of any report of injury attributed to this defect in Australia.
