Cardinal Health has created a webpage, www.cardinalhealth.com/SurgicalGownProductRecall, to keep customers informed about its Jan. 21 recall of certain surgical gowns because it could not assure their sterility. The company recalled 9.1 million AAMI Level 3 gowns produced by a former contractor after learning that some of the gowns were made at unapproved locations that did not maintain proper environmental conditions. About 1.4 million of the gowns were not distributed. For more on the recall, see the Jan. 22 AHA Quality Advisory.
