Baxter is voluntarily recalling four lots of intravenous (IV) solutions to the hospital/user level due to the potential for leaking containers and particulate matter. See Firm Press Release for affected lots.

Leaking containers could result in contamination of the solution. If not detected, this could lead to a bloodstream infection, worsened patient condition or other serious adverse health consequences. Injecting a product containing particulate matter, in the absence of in-line filtration, may result in blockage of blood vessels, which can result in stroke, heart attack, damage to other organs such as the kidney or liver, or death. There is also the possibility of allergic reactions, local irritation and inflammation in tissues and organs.
