(PRWEB) July 23, 2014
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, update the website daily regarding all the latest information from the FDA on Sodium Chloride and Potassium Chloride Solutions.
The FDA published on July 18 that four lots of IV Sodium Chloride and Potassium Chloride Solutions by Baxter International Inc. are recalled because they were found to contain particulate matter. Sodium Chloride Injection, USP is used as a source of water and electrolytes, a priming solution in hemodialysis procedures, and also as a diluent for reconstitution of a powdered drug product. Potassium Chloride Injection is used as a potassium replacement to support muscle contraction, nerve conduction, and prevention of cardiac arrhythmias.
The reason for the recall is based on customer complaints who identified the appearance of visible particulate matter prior to administration. If the particulate matter is infused, it may cause chronic and acute allergic and inflammatory responses that may be life threatening depending on various conditions like the medical condition of the patient and the size of the particles.
The affected products include:
- 0.9% Sodium Chloride 100 mL (Quad Pack)
- 0.9% Sodium Chloride 100 mL MINI-BAG Plus
- 0.9% Sodium Chloride, 50 mL (Single Pack)
- Highly Concentrated Potassium Chloride Injection, 20 mEq/50 mL, VIAFLEX Plus Container
