Reason/Issue Emergo have identified the potential for the tethered plug on the hub inadvertently opening after closure. The tethered plug not staying closed in the feeding tube hub may result in a leak of nutrition from the feeding tube. As described in the Instructions for Use (IFU) provided with the product, sterile water should be the only liquid that would leak from the feeding tube when the user flushes the tube before and after use. To date, no adverse events related to this issue have been reported to NeoMed.
