  • BD Provides Update on Voluntary Recalls of Alaris(TM) Pump Module Model 8100 and Certain Alaris(TM) Pump Infusion Sets Summary Company Announcement Date: July 18, 2019 FDA Publish Date: July 18, 2019 Product Type: Medical Devices Reason for Announcement: Recall Reason Description Weakening of the plastic can lead to damage or separation of the bezel posts which can cause issues with infusion, or unintended delivery of medication when pump module is not in running status Company Name: BD Brand Name: Brand Name(s) Alaris Product Description: Product Description Alaris Pump Module Model 8100 and Certain Alaris Pump Infusion Sets Company Announcement

    BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, today provided an update on two voluntary recalls related to certain Alaris(TM) Pump Modules Model 8100 manufactured between April 2011 and June 2017 and certain model codes and lot numbers of the Alaris(TM) Pump Infusion Sets used with the Alaris(TM) Pump Model 8100. BD has already notified customers affected by these recalls. Both products were formerly marketed under the CareFusion brand, which BD acquired in March 2015.

    Both actions have been designated as a Class I recall by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Both recalls have been associated with medical device reporting (MDR) submissions, several of which are associated with serious injuries.

    Alaris(TM) Pump Module Model 8100

    In a recall notification sent on April 15, 2019, BD informed clinicians that the bezel assemblies in the Alaris pump modules subject to this recall expansion were manufactured with a specific type of plastic material. The company conducted an investigation and determined that the bezel manufacturing process resulted in weakened plastic. Over time, further weakening of the plastic has the potential to lead to separation of the bezel posts, as well as other damage to the bezel, which may result in free-flow, over-infusion, under-infusion or interruption of infusion.

    No products manufactured after June 2017 are affected by this recall, including the BD Alaris(TM) PCU and BD Alaris(TM) Pump Module that were introduced in March 2018.

    BD is contacting the customers affected by the Alaris Pump Module Model 8100 bezel recall to schedule replacement of bezel assemblies. On April 15, 2019, the BD customer notification instructed customers to inspect all pumps included in this action during the annual preventive maintenance, and if damage is found, the pump should be removed from service and BD should be contacted. The revised recall notification indicates that until the bezels affected by this recall are replaced, customers should inspect both Priority 1 and Priority 2 pumps as soon as feasible. In addition to posting the updated recall notification on BD's website, this updated notification will be sent to all customers by July 31, 2019.

    There are no changes to the affected product list. Customers should continue to refer to the attachments included in the recall notification issued on April 15, 2019.

    Information about this recall, including the original and updated recall notification, is available on BD's website at alaris.bdproductnotice.com or call BD at 888-562-6018.

    Alaris(TM) Infusion Sets

    In a recall notification sent on May 6, 2019, BD confirmed that an incomplete occlusion can occur on the pumping segment of certain Alaris(TM) Pump Model 8100 infusion sets. This is caused by a variation in the wall thickness of the pumping segment of the affected infusion sets. Use of the affected products has the potential to lead to unintended delivery of medication when the pump module is not in running status, flow inaccuracies through the pumping cycle process resulting in an over-infusion, and the potential for serious patient injury depending on the type of medication that is being delivered. Instructions for customers, including a full list of affected product codes, lot numbers and expiration dates are included on the BD website at https://www.bd.com/en-us/support/recall-notifications/recall-notification-alaris-pump-infusion-sets. BD is instructing customers to destroy all Alaris Infusion Sets affected by this recall.

    Customer inquiries related to this action should be addressed to BD's Regional Customer Quality team at 888-237-2762.
