Tissue Stabilizer Recall

The Food and Drug Administration has announced that a recalled medical tissue device "could cause more problems than originally thought." The device, Octopus Nuvo Tissue Stabilizer, was recalled by Medtronic Inc. in September because of its potential to break during use, posing a danger to patients. Now, officials are saying that using the product could cause severe injury or death and demand health care facilities cease using them. The recall has been stepped up to a Class 1 Recall according to Medtronic. Read the full story here.
