BD is conducting a product removal recall of lot 6291768 of the BD Insulin Syringes with the BD Ultra-FineTM needle ½mL 12.7mm 30G, Catalog # 328466, because some polybags in the lot are incorrectly labeled as BD Ultra-FineTM needle ½mL 8mm 31G, Catalog # 328468. The shelf carton is correctly labeled as BD Insulin Syringes with the BD Ultra-FineTM needle ½mL 12.7mm 30G. The affected recalled lot was distributed from March 3, 2017 to present. The polybags of BD Insulin Syringes with the BD Ultra-FineTM needle that are incorrectly labeled as ½mL 8mm 31G, contain syringes that are ½mL 12.7mm 30G. This may represent a health hazard to patients using the product affected by this recall. Using a 12.7mm needle for injection when an 8mm was intended, could result in an increased risk of an inadvertent intramuscular injection, which may lead to unanticipated hypoglycemia.
