SAN DIEGO, Jan. 11 CareFusion (NYSE: CFN), a leading, global medical device company, announced today that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given the company permission to resume manufacturing and marketing the Alaris® SE line of infusion pumps (also known as the Signature Edition® infusion pump).

CareFusion, formerly the Clinical and Medical Products division of Cardinal Health, has been operating under a consent decree with the FDA since February 2007. The consent decree included an injunction on the manufacture and sale of the Alaris SE pump. The FDA recently notified CareFusion that the injunction has been lifted, allowing the company to resume sales of the Alaris SE pump.

"We have worked diligently over the past several years to improve our quality system and to complete the necessary steps to resume the production, sale and installation of the Alaris SE pump," said David Schlotterbeck, chairman and CEO of CareFusion. "While we still have work to do under our consent decree, we are pleased to have reached this important milestone."
