A medical care kit company is recalling more than 8,200 kits because they contain BD applicators that may become contaminated with a fungus.
The recall by Medical Action Industries covers certain of its 306 Medical Convenience Kits, distributed between December 12, 2019, and March 22, 2021, according to the FDA. The agency has labeled the recall Class I, the most serious type.
Mechanicsville, Va.-based Medical Action Industries, which is owned by Owens & Minor, initiated the recall last month. It follows BD’s own expanded recall of its ChloraPrep 3 mL applicator, which is used to sanitize skin prior to wound care, catheter procedure or blood collection.
