The FDA has announced a recall for CareFusion's Alaris pump module Model 8100, stating that faulty keypads can cause serious injury, including death. The pump module is used in healthcare facilities to deliver fluids, drugs, and blood to patients. The affected pumps were manufactured between the dates of October 2011 to February 2012. The FDA has previously recalled another CareFusion pump, Alaris PC unit Model 8015 earlier this month. Our firm has experience to find and preserve evidence which may still be in the hands of healthcare providers, and is sometimes very important before equipment is critically altered by the manufacturer or third party.
