Medical device recall for BD PosiFlush™ Heparin Lock Flush Syringes and BD™ Pre-Filled Normal Saline Syringes

Out of an abundance of caution and in the interest of public health, BD is voluntarily recalling certain lots of BD PosiFlush™ Heparin Lock Flush and BD™ Pre-Filled Normal Saline Flush syringes due to a potential for contamination with Serratia marcescens bacterium. BD was notified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about a potential epidemiological link between catheter related blood stream infections and the S. marcescens bacterium. To date, there is no evidence of BD flush product testing positive for this bacterium.
