Alpine Fresh, Inc. of Doral, Florida is voluntarily recalling its 1 pound packages of "Hippie Organics" French Beans from lot# 313-626, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The recalled "Hippie Organics 1lbs French Beans" were distributed in Whole Foods (CT, FL, GA,... IL, MD) , Aldi (FL) and LIDL (DE, GA, MD, NJ, NY, NC, PA, SC, VA) retail stores.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The product comes in a 1 pound, clear plastic package marked with lot # 313-626 on the back on a small, white label. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem. The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the company revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in 1 pound packages of "Hippie Organics French Beans From lot # 313-626." The problem has been found to be isolated to the identified lot and the company has taken corrective actions to prevent a recurrence. Consumers who have purchased 1 pound packages of "Hippie Organics French Beans from lot #313-626" are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-866-827-3362.

Baxter International Inc. announced today it has issued an Urgent Safety Communication to reinforce important safety information regarding upstream occlusion alarms for all Spectrum V8 and Spectrum IQ infusion pumps. Incorrect administration set setup and/or incomplete resolution of upstream occlusion alarms may result in reduced delivery or... non-delivery of medication, in some cases without alerting the user via pump alarm. Spectrum V8 and Spectrum IQ are distributed in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and certain Caribbean islands.
Baxter previously communicated this information to customers via an Urgent Safety Communication notification on December 29, 2021. Customers notified Baxter that the pump was not delivering medication at the programmed rate displayed on the screen, and in some cases was not alarming for upstream occlusions.
As described in the Urgent Safety Communication notification, after an upstream occlusion alarm, it is imperative to fully resolve any upstream occlusion before restarting the pump. Failure to do so may cause the pump not to re-alarm as expected, which can lead to interruption in therapy and/or under-infusion. The potential harm to the patient depends on several factors such as length of therapy delay, medication being infused, volume and rate of infusion, and the patient’s underlying status and comorbidities.
To date, Baxter has received 51 reports of serious injury and three reports of patient death over five years that may have resulted from incorrect administration set setup and/or incomplete resolution of upstream occlusion alarms. Customers may continue to use Spectrum V8 and Spectrum IQ infusion pumps by following on-screen instructions and referencing the Operator’s Manual for infusion setup instructions in the Preparing the Pump and IV Sets and Programming the Pump sections and upstream occlusion alarm troubleshooting in the Alarms section.
To help prevent upstream occlusions, it is important to completely spike the IV container, remove the blue slide clamp completely from the keyhole, disengage the blue slide clamp completely from the IV tubing, check that the IV tubing is clear of any kinks or collapsed sections, ensure the roller clamp (if present) is released prior to infusion start, and ensure that rigid and semirigid containers are properly vented. After starting an infusion, it is important to verify that drips are flowing in the drip chamber, which may take several minutes when infusing at flow rates below 5 mL/hr. If an upstream occlusion remains after the RUN/STOP key is pressed, the pump may appear to be infusing normally but may be infusing below the programmed rate or not infusing at all. If a clinician suspects that they resumed an infusion without clearing an occlusion, they should stop the infusion by pressing the RUN/STOP key, clear the occlusion and restart the infusion.

Sigma Spectrum Infusion Pumps - recalled due to deviations from the specified cleaning methods may impair infusion pump, USA
1 year ago
Company name: Baxter International Inc.
Brand name: Sigma Spectrum
Product recalled: Infusion Pumps
Reason of the recall: Deviations from the specified cleaning methods may impair infusion pump
FDA Recall date: October 29, 2020
Recall details: Baxter International Inc. announced today it has issued an Urgent Device Correction... to reinforce important safety information regarding cleaning practices of all Spectrum infusion pumps distributed in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean, as deviations from the specified cleaning methods may impair infusion pump functionality and performance. Baxter previously communicated this information to customers directly in a Safety Alert on April 1, 2020 and subsequently via an Urgent Device Correction notification on August 28, 2020.
Deviations from the cleaning methods described in product-specific Operator’s Manuals may lead to residue buildup or corrosion of the electrical pins (e.g. depressed pins) on the infusion pump rear case and battery electrical contacts. This could result in notifications that the user should check the battery, or that batteries are not charging or holding their charge. If a device has residue buildup or corrosion, and is running solely on battery power, the pump may shut down without alarming or alerting the user. An undetected or abrupt discontinuation in medication delivery may lead to a delay or interruption of intended treatment. Depending on various factors, including the medication being infused, the volume and rate of the infusion, the route of administration, and patient status and comorbidities, this could result in serious adverse health consequences or death.
To date, Baxter has received 16 reports of serious injuries that may have resulted from improper cleaning practice-related residue buildup and/or corrosion. In addition to adhering to the cleaning instructions provided in the Operator’s Manuals for the products listed below, Baxter is instructing customers to assess the rear case electrical pins and battery electrical contacts for residue buildup or corrosion and depressed pins. Baxter is also recommending to have backup devices readily available when infusing critical medications. Additionally, the infusion pumps should be connected to AC power when possible to prevent battery depletion.
Finally, Baxter will be clarifying the Instructions for Use (IFU) to recommend a routine inspection to identify signs of residue buildup, corrosion and depressed pins. Once completed, Baxter will issue a written notification to inform customers of the availability of the updated IFU, which will be accessible in Baxter’s Global Technical E-Service Center: service.baxter.com .
