Becton Dickinson (BD) Recalls Alaris Infusion Sets for the Alaris Pump Model 8100 Due to Potential for Tube Collapse that May Cause Unintended Delivery or Faster than Expected Delivery of Medication

Becton Dickinson (BD) is recalling Alaris Infusion Sets, due to the potential for faster than expected delivery of medication (over-infusion) or an unintended delivery that occurs while the pump is not in a “running status.” The firm has determined that the silicone segment of the affected administration set has non-uniform thickness. Non-uniform wall thickness can lead to non-uniform tubing collapse and can contribute to a failure to fully occlude the tubing. This device defect may cause serious adverse health consequences for patients, including death. This recall has been associated with MDR reports, several of which are associated with serious injuries.
