"Several thousand intravenous extension and administration sets packaged and labelled as sterile have been stolen in transit prior to being sterilised," the agency announced, warning of the infection risk posed by the devices. The alert involves six batches of the Basingstoke, UK-based Alaris' IVAC 590 infusion set and pump, and a total of 16 batches of six models of Clinico (Bad Hersfeld, Germany) infusion, transfusion and extension sets.
