Device Recall Information

Medical Device Recalls


MARCQI posts Class I and Class II recalls that involve implantable devices because of the risk to patients. For reference, the definitions of these classes, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), are:

  • Class 1 recall: a situation in which there is a reasonable probability that the use of or exposure to a volatile product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.
  • Class 2 recall:  a situation in which use of or exposure to a volatile product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.
  • Class 3 recall: a situation in which use of or exposure to a violative product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences.
  • Medical Device Safety Alert: issued in situations where a medical device may present an unreasonable risk of substantial harm. In some case, these situations also are considered recalls.
  • Correction or Removal: manufacturers and importers are required to make a report to FDA of any correction or removal of a medical device(s) if the correction or removal was initiated to reduce a risk to health posed by the device or to remedy a violation of the Act caused by the device which may present a risk to health.
