Heparin-filled syringes recalled due to serious health risk

A North Carolina company has issued a nationwide recall of heparin and saline pre-filled syringes because people in several states have become seriously ill due to a bacterial infection found in the syringes. The syringes are used for a variety of home medical uses, such as cleaning out catheter tubes.

The bacterial contaminant is known as Serratia marcescens, which according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), “could present a serious adverse health consequence that could lead to life-threatening injuries and/or death.”

The bacteria can potentially cause serious Florida personal injury and death.
