Recalling Firm: Gyrus Acmi, Inc., Southborough, MA, by letter dated April 15, 2011.
Manufacturer: Gyrus Medical, Inc., Osseo, MN. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
As a result of a manufacturing error in the production this lot of guidewires, some units of product were loaded in the dispenser backwards. In such cases, the stiff end of the guidewire would be dispensed from the product first and, if undetected, could be inserted into the patient. Depending on the specific clinical circumstances of the patient, this could potentially cause perforation of the ureter and surrounding anatomy. Therefore Gyrus ACMI has chosen, out of an abundance of caution, to conduct a voluntary recall of this lot of product.

BBL" OXACILLIN SCREEN AGAR, catalog #221952, box of 10 plates. Oxacillin Screen Agar (originally named MRSA Screen Agar) was developed for the detection of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). These strains are resistant to penicillinase-resistant penicillins (PRPs), such as methicillin, oxacillin and nafcillin. Since the method to detect MRSA uses the same inoculum as the Bauer-Kirby antimicrobial disc susceptibility test procedure, the oxacillin screen test may be conveniently performed on isolates at the same time as routine susceptibility testing.
