U.S. Deer Antler Ex. & Imp., of Los Angeles, CA is recalling a variety of Herbal Teas prepared on premises between 4/1/17 and 4/30/17 in cooperation with an inspection made by the California Department of Public Health. The aforementioned Herbal Teas, especially those with low-acidity held at room temperature, were not produced according to approved guideline, making them susceptible to contamination by Clostridium botulinum.

The Herbal Teas were distributed to individual customers and acupuncturists in California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.

Symptoms of Clostridium botulinum typically begin with blurred or double vision followed by trouble speaking, swallowing; and progression to muscle weakness starting in the upper body, moving downward.  Botulism can lead to life-threatening paralysis of breathing muscles requiring support with a breathing machine (ventilator) and intensive care.

People experiencing these symptoms who have recently consumed these Herbal Teas should seek immediate medical attention.

In its ongoing cooperation with the California Department of Public Health, U.S. Deer Antler Ex. & Imp., Inc. has immediately segregated its entire inventory of Herbal Tea varieties, and is notifying consumers and customers not to consume potentially-contaminated product.

ReFlow Medical Issues Recall of Specific Lots of Wingman35 Crossing Catheters

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On April 22, 2017, ReFlow Medical initiated a lot-specific voluntary recall of the Wingman35 Crossing Catheters.

The FDA is classifying this as a Class 1 recall, the most serious recall situation where the patient is exposed to a reasonable likelihood of death or a serious injury. The Wingman35 Crossing Catheters have been found to exhibit tip splitting or separation, which has resulted in two adverse events. ReFlow has received 2 complaints of catheter-tip splitting and/or separation. A total of 2327 Wingman catheters are in distribution.

Tip splitting has the potential to lead to loss of device function. Tip separation may require medical intervention to retrieve a separated segment or may occlude blood flow to end organs.

The Wingman Crossing Catheters in this recall were distributed between January 2015 and March 2016.

ReFlow Medical has notified its customers and distributors by recall notification letters. The letters requested that all customers and distributors quarantine and discontinue use of all potentially affected units and return the affected product to the company as soon as possible for credit.

FDA and other regulatory agencies around the world have been notified of this action.
