The FDA begins a pilot program seeking to expedite notifications of human drug product recalls to the public. The agency will modify the drug product section of the Enforcement Report17, published every Wednesday, to include actions that have been determined to be recalls, but that remain in the process of being classified as a Class I, II, or III action. Such recalls will be listed under the heading, “Recalls Pending Classification: DRUGS.” They will be reposted with their classification once that determination has been made. Send comments or suggestions to CDERRecallPilot@fda.hhs.gov.

Medtronic Arctic Front Catheter, Sterile EO, Model 2AF282 and 2AF231 ( not distributed in US) Product Usage: The Medtronic CryoCath System consists of a Cryoablation console, cardiac Cryoablation catheters, connection components and accessories. The Arctic Front Cardiac Cryoablation Catheter is an over the wire Balloon catheter. The inside of the Balloon at the distal end of the Cryoablation Catheter reaches temperatures of -50 C or colder when refrigerant is injected from the console to the inside of the balloon. Arctic Front Cardiac Cryoablation catheters are introduced into the vasculature by traditional minimally invasive techniques. The CryoConsole houses the electrical and mechanical components as well as proprietary software for controlling and recording a cryotherapy procedure with Arctic Front and/or the Freezor family of catheters. It stores and controls the delivery of the liquid refrigerant through the coaxial umbilical to the catheter, recovers the refrigerant vapor from the catheter under constant vacuum, and disposes of the refrigerant through the hospital scavenging system. Multiple features are built into the catheter and the CryoConsole system to ensure safety. Model Number: 2AF282. Recall # Z-0149-2012
