Infusion pumps and sets - recalled due to pumps may not deliver fluid at the accuracy specified in the instructions, USA
1 year ago
Company name: CME America
Brand name: CMEAmerica BodyGuard
Product recalled: Infusion pumps and infusion sets
Reason of the recall: pumps may not deliver fluid at the accuracy specified in the instructions for use and infusion sets may under-deliver fluids
FDA Recall date: April 29, 2020
Recall details:... CME America, a wholly owned subsidiary of BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), a leading global medical technology company, today issued the following update regarding two previously announced voluntary recalls, one related to all models of CMEAmerica BodyGuard® infusion pumps (FDA Recall Number: Z-1474-2020) and the other related to one of the device's infusion sets (FDA Recall Number: Z-1442-2020). Both previously announced recalls have now been designated as Class I recalls by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which means the FDA believes that there is a reasonable probability that use of the recalled product(s) will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.
CME America previously notified customers affected by each recall and provided guidance on the potential impact to device performance when the affected products were used. Today, the company has issued an updated customer letter with additional guidance and to inform customers of the decision to suspend distribution of the BodyGuard® infusion pump system and to remove all existing products from the U.S. market.
The following is a summary of each individual product recall details:
CMEAmerica BodyGuard® Infusion Pump Recall
Details On Jan. 6, 2020, the company initiated a voluntary recall to notify customers of certain scenarios where pumps may not deliver fluid at the accuracy specified in the instructions for use that could result in a slower than expected delivery of medication (under-infusion), and/or faster than expected delivery of medication (over-infusion). Results indicate that pumps may have a delivery inaccuracy of up to ~13%. To date, no reports of patient injury has been received related to this previously announced voluntary recall. CME America has assessed the potential risks associated with the issues outlined in the initial voluntary recall and determined that the BodyGuard® infusion pump may continue to be used in certain situations in accordance with the Operator's Manual and the additional mitigations outlined in the updated customer letter until the pumps have been removed from the market.
To ensure customers retain access to critical medical equipment, particularly as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve in the United States, CME America will implement a phased market removal and will continue to support the following activities in order to help limit clinical disruption and maintain patient focus during the COVID-19 pandemic: Use of products in the field in accordance with the Operator's Manual and the additional mitigations outlined in the updated customer letter; Product service and repair activities at CME America and Authorized Service Depots; and Supply of infusion sets and accessories to support the infusion pumps remaining in the field.
The BodyGuard® infusion pump is designed to deliver fluids or medications into a patient's body in controlled amounts. The pump administers fluids through an infusion tubing set into a patient's vein or through other cleared routes of administration. The system is intended for patients who require maintenance medications, PCA therapy, parenteral nutritional fluids, and general IV fluid therapy in hospital and home care environments. Typical applications for the BodyGuard® infusion pumps include but are not limited to chemotherapy, pain management, TPN, enteral nutrition fluids and antibiotics.
The recall and market removal affect approximately 28,400 devices, including all models of BodyGuard® infusion pumps listed below. These devices are primarily used in outpatient settings.
- BodyGuard 121
- BodyGuard 323
- BodyGuard 545*
- BodyGuard 575*
- BodyGuard 545 ColorVision
- BodyGuard 575 ColorVision
*Note: These two pump models were inadvertently left out of the initial customer notification
CMEAmerica BodyGuard® Microset Infusion Set Recall
Details On Sept. 16, 2019, the company initiated a voluntary recall to notify customers that certain lots of BodyGuard® Microset infusion sets, when used with the BodyGuard® infusion pump, may under-deliver fluids up to 50% at the highest flow rates. At the time of the recall, CME America informed customers in the recall announcement to discard all remaining inventory of the infusion sets (Catalog #A120-003XYVA) and committed to reimbursing impacted customers. To date, no reports of patient injury has been received related to this previously announced voluntary recall. CME America immediately stopped shipments of the affected infusion sets. This FDA classification does not change the previous guidance provided in the company's September recall announcement to customers. Affected products include:
CMEAmerica BodyGuard® Microset, Catalog #A120-003XYVA.
This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

I ordered a chain saw and was sent a weird saw string thing that was not as pictured. , Phoenix, AZ, USA
1 week ago
I ordered a wood cutter, chain saw, rechargeable on 3/18/21. The linked showed up on Facebook. I did not receive my chain saw. Apparently the company, Amphitrite Technology Limited has been scamming people all year. It wasn’t until I found your website that I realized I had... been sent this weird chain, hand cutter. There are many pictures posted on your site of the same product. I had no idea why this thing came to me. I did not think it was a “replacement” or substitute for the little chain saw that was rechargeable.
I can see there are several posts about the same problem. What can be done? Why has PayPal continued to allow the seller to sell? What can you do? What can I do, to stop others from the company”s fraud?
I purchased through PayPal; directly after this purchase my bank notified me that someone tried to buy a cell phone. What happens next? With so many reports of fraud, why hasn’t the seller been reported to officials? What can you do? What can I do on my part? I contacted PayPal. The company should be blocked from selling
Company name: Pfizer
Brand name: CHANTIX
Product recalled: Varenicline tablets
Reason of the recall: N-nitroso-varenicline above acceptable daily intake level
FDA Recall date: September 16, 2021
Recall details: Pfizer is voluntarily recalling all lots of Chantix 0.5 mg and 1 mg Tablets to the patient (consumer/user) level... due to the presence of a nitrosamine, N-nitroso-varenicline, at or above the FDA interim acceptable intake limit. As alternative suppliers have been approved in the United States, Pfizer is undertaking this precautionary measure. Long-term ingestion of N-nitroso-varenicline may be associated with a theoretical potential increased cancer risk in humans, but there is no immediate risk to patients taking this medication. Check the link below for the full list of the recalled products.
The health benefits of stopping smoking outweigh the theoretical potential cancer risk from the nitrosamine impurity in varenicline. Nitrosamines are common in water and foods, including cured and grilled meats, dairy products and vegetables. Everyone is exposed to some level of nitrosamines. These impurities may increase the risk of cancer if people are exposed to them above acceptable levels over long periods of time.
Chantix is a treatment to help patients quit smoking and is intended for short-term use. People who smoke cigarettes are 15 to 30 times more likely to get lung cancer than people who do not smoke.
Smoking is also associated with many other cancers, as well as with cardiovascular disease and lung disease. CHANTIX has a safety profile that has been established over 15 years of marketing authorization and through a robust clinical program. Pfizer believes the benefit/risk profile of CHANTIX remains positive. Patients currently taking Chantix should consult with their healthcare provider about alternative treatment options.
To date, Pfizer has not received reports of adverse events assessed to be related to this recall. The NDC, Lot Number, Expiration Date, and Configuration details for Chantix Tablets are indicated in Appendix A. Photos of the products can be found in Appendix B.
The products were distributed nationwide to Wholesalers and Distributors in the United States, US Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico from May 2019 to September 2021. Pfizer places the utmost emphasis on patient safety and product quality at every step in the manufacturing and supply chain process. Pfizer has notified their direct consignees by letter to arrange for return of any recalled product.
Wholesalers and Distributors with an existing inventory of Chantix tablets, should stop use and distribution and quarantine the product immediately. If you have further distributed the recalled product, please notify any accounts or additional locations which may have received the recalled product from you. Please conduct a sub-recall to those accounts and communicate this recall information immediately.
If you received free product through the Pfizer Patient Assistance Program (PAP) or the Pfizer Institutional Patient Assistance Program (IPAP), please check your stock immediately. Additionally, if you are aware of any patients to whom you dispensed the products and who still may have the product in their possession, please ask them to return the product.
As communicated by FDA, there is no immediate risk to patients taking Chantix.iv Patients who are taking this product should consult with their health care provider to determine if alternative treatments are available.

Bought a bag of heartland farms dog food from our local dollar store on 7-26-21, a week later we noticed that all 3 of our dogs had bloody stool, not long after that our youngest boxer started vomiting up blood. Called our local vet explained what was... going on and she said to stop feeding them for 24 hours and give them pepto bismol and switch them back to pedigree immediately.

I am in no way seeking anything. But there is definitely something wrong with the food. Thank you. | Symptoms: Vomiting, Bloody Stool
