Infusion Pump Recalled

A New York company, Moog Inc. of East Aurora, announced a Class I recall for its Curlin Ambulatory Infusion Pumps manufactured and updated from May 2007 to February 2011. The device recall was instituted due to a software issue that may lead the pump to shutdown.

The pumps, which assists in intravenous infusion, have been identified as the Curlin 6000 CMS, CMS IOD and Painsmart pumps. If the device fails during use, it may result in a delay or interruption of the delivery of medicine or life-saving fluids, which could result in serious injury and/or death, reports say.

No adverse patient events have reported to Moog Inc. so far, but the Class I recall suggests it is a possible serious problem. Moog Medical notified all affected customers of the recall and is preparing to take corrective action. Moog Medical customer service can be reached, toll-free, at 1 800 970-2337.
