WalkMed Infusion LLC issued a voluntary recall for its Triton pole mount infusion pumps.
Englewood, Colo.-based company said the recall covers 2,018 Triton pumps manufactured and sold before June 2010 with serial numbers 001 through 500 and serial numbers TR1401 through TR 2559.
WalkMed found that the device’s pump door open alarm could fail, which could potentially cause over-infusion of medication into patients. The company said no incidents related to the problem have been reported. The Food & Drug Administration said any incidents may be reported to its MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program.
The company said it has already upgraded the devices for five out of the eight distributors and customers of the products.
The latest infusion pump recall comes just three weeks after the FDA heightened the danger level for its recall of CareFusion Corp.’s (NYSE:CFN) Alaris PC infusion units. The watchdog agency classified the recall of approximately 17,000 CareFusion infusion units as a Class I recall, the most serious level of product recalls.
