Baxter Healthcare Corporation is notifying customers of a labeling error affecting the expiration date of the Sterile Water for Injection that is packaged as a diluent with RECOMBINATE [Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant)]. The Sterile Water for Injection label indicates that the shelf life is longer than what is currently approved, and is in conflict with the approved license expiry period. Baxter asks customers to continue using the RECOMBINATE product as labeled on the kit. There is no impact to the safety or efficacy of the product should the Sterile Water for Injection diluents be used at any time through the duration of the kits labeled shelf life (not the shelf life of the Sterile Water for Injection), as it meets all required specifications as labeled.Baxter
