Just want those using these things to be careful to double check. Here is all I can find on this, which is almost nil:www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/dec/31/fda-wallcur-IV-alert/
"In its notice, the agency said it had learned that some of the IV bags had been administered to patients at certain health facilities.
“These products are for training purposes only. ... There have been reports of serious adverse events associated with the use” of them, the agency said.
It wasn’t clear Wednesday how many patients were affected or what specific medical consequences they suffered. The FDA also didn’t explain how the training solution bags ended up in a supply chain that has many checks and balances intended to prevent medication mix-ups.
“As this is an ongoing issue, we are unable to provide additional information at this time,” FDA spokeswoman Tara Goodin said in an email. “We are working to inform health care professionals to carefully check their supply and not inject these products into patients (humans or animals).”
Wallcur makes a range of products for the health-care training industry. In addition to IV bags, the company sells vials, ampuls and injection simulators.
Paul Delmore, the company’s attorney, said Wallcur isn’t sure how the bags — which are clearly marked “Not for human or animal injection. For clinical simulation only.” — ended up being administered to patients. He said the company generally doesn’t sell directly to front-line customers, instead providing its products to wholesalers who then fill orders from training facilities.
“We are still investigating this. We don’t know even how many folks we’re talking about
, but we think it’s less than four,” Delmore said."
