The Food and Drug Administration today announced a Class 1 recall of devices used to access blood vessels through a patient’s bone because the devices may malfunction, which could cause serious injury or death. Becton Dickinson recalled the over 36,000 intraosseous needle set and driver kits in June, and recommended customers quarantine the devices. FDA said 37 complaints have been associated with the recall, but no serious injuries or deaths.
