Boston alerts customers about stolen unsterilised devices

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Boston Scientific has warned its customers that a stolen shipment of unsterilised endoscopy and urology/women's health medical devices may be on the market and could cause infections if used. The products were intercepted en route to the firm's sterilisation facility between 8 and 11 April; however, the packaging erroneously states that they are sterile. The Natick, Massachusetts firm urged customers to check their inventory for affected products and monitor incoming shipments; they are advised not to use any of the affected devices and to contact the company. Unusually low pricing could be an indication that the product has been stolen. Affected devices include the Resolution clip for use in the gastrointestinal tract, the Pinnacle pelvic floor repair kit, and Flexiva single-use laser. Boston is working with the US FDA to recover the stolen shipment.
