Luer leakages cause BD Medical spinal needles recall:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Becton Dickinson has launched a worldwide precautionary recall of certain lots of its BD Medical 25-gauge spinal needles, due to leakage problems with the luer connection in the needle hub, according to a UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) alert posted last week. The problem is associated with an undersized luer taper in the spinal needle hub, posing a risk of under-infusion.
