Any chance this is what was used that caused you so much grief recently??
FDA recalls 2 million Huber needles, manufactured by Nipro Medical Corp. in Japan and distributed by Exelint International Corp. They are used with ports, which are small medical appliances
placed under the skin. The Class 1 recall involves Exel/Exelint Huber needles, Exel/Exelint Huber Infusion Sets and Exel/Exelint "Securetouch+" Safety Huber Infusion Sets. The agency determined that 60 to 70 percent of Exelint's needles "cored," or cut slivers of silicone, when inserted into ports, raising the possibility of the silicone slivers entering the veins, damaging the port itself or harming the surrounding tissue. Class 1 recall means FDA considers them of the "highest risk".
I found the story at CNN Health.
