Portugal withdraws Geon digital thermometers:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Portuguese healthcare regulatory body, Infarmed, has withdrawn all digital thermometers made by Geon Corporation in Taiwan. The decision follows an investigation into a series of adverse incidents, which revealed that the thermometer imported from Taiwan was recording 37degreesC at a body temperature of 40degreesC. Infarmed decided to implement a full withdrawal after concluding that the Chang Hua, Taiwan-based manufacturer was "not able to guarantee the correct operation of the device".
