Cordis Issues “Urgent” Recall On Fire Star Rx Balloon Catheters

In short

J&J’s Cordis division is worried that one lot of its Fire Star Rx Balloon Catheters runs the risk of deflating too slowly or worse, not at all.┬áThe recall is limited to certain Far Eastern countries.

Background

MassDevice has covered the story here, but it seems that one specific lot of 292 items of the product, distributed in China, India, Indonesia, South Korea and Taiwan may suffer the problem, to which end the company has withdrawn and recalled the product from those markets.
