Fresenius Medical Care Holdings Inc. Key Developments

Fresenius Medical Care North America Announces Voluntary Recall of 56 Lots of NaturaLyte(R) Liquid Bicarbonate Concentrate

Fresenius Medical Care North America announced that its voluntary recall of 56 lots of NaturaLyte(R) Liquid Bicarbonate Concentrate, 6.4 liters (intended for use in hemodialysis machines) from distribution has been classified as a Class 1 Recall. The affected lots were produced in its Montreal, Canada facility and are being recalled because they may develop higher bacteria levels than is allowed by the company's internal specification during their shelf life. Laboratory testing has identified the bacteria as Halomonas (species 1, 2, 3), a Gram Negative bacteria, typically found in water with high salinity (salt concentration). According to a few case reports in the medical literature, bacterial contamination of the dialysate may lead to bacteremia or systemic infection. The dialysis filter (dialyzer) and the use of the Diasafe(TM) filter or equivalent create an effective bacteria and endotoxin barrier that makes this event unlikely.
