In January, Cook Medical initiated a voluntary global recall of Hemospray Endoscopic Hemostat after receiving complaints that the handle and/or activation knob had cracked or broken when the device was activated. The recall applied to all lots manufactured from 16 January 2017 to 15 January 2020.
Cook Medical has implemented a new production test to address concerns with potential cracking or breaking of the activation knob. Now 100% of the activation knob components are inspected to ensure that they exceed worst-case forces applied to the activation knob during activation of the device. No changes have been made to the Hemospray Endoscopic Hemostat device’s delivery system or functionality.
