FDA Recalls OB-GYN, Surgical Devices – Brief Article

Brian Torrey

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that some of the medical devices manufactured since 1999 by A&A Medical Inc. of Alpharetta, Ga., may not have been sterilized and could cause “serious and possibly life-threatening infections.”

Curettes, uterine dilators, and mucous samplers are on the long list of OB-GYN and surgical devices made and marketed under the A&A Medical label as well as under the labels Rocket USA and Lifequest. A complete list of products and distributors is available at www.fda.gov/ cdrh/recalls/recall31402.html.
