Boca Recalls Insulin Syringe Product Due To Contamination

Boca Medical Products, Inc., based in Coral Springs, Florida, have decided to recall around 4000 boxes of Ultilet Insulin Syringe 30g 1/2cc due to possible contamination of Bacillus Cereus and Staphylococcus Intermedius. The products if not recalled, may degrade the insulin thereby leading to problems such as maintaining the insulin levels. The concern is on the process of evaluating the other possible risks too, reports foodconsumer.org.

Consumers, who use Ultilet Syringe Insulin product lot 5GEXI, have been requested to stop usage and return the specific product. Even the wholesalers were advised to stop retail and return the product lot to Boca Medical Products Inc, 3550 NW 126th Ave, Corals Springs, FL 33065. Attention: Recall Contact. For any question related to the case consumers should call 1-800-354-8460.

The firm has placed all inventory of the product on hold. FDA has been apprised of this action.
