Haltom City, TX – Nurse Assist, Inc. announced today that it is voluntarily recalling all unexpired lots of I.V. Flush Syringes due to a potential link to Burkholderia cepacia bloodstream infections with the product. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the effects of Burkholderia cepacia on people “vary widely, ranging from no symptoms at all to serious respiratory infections, especially in patients with cystic fibrosis.” If a patient is having symptoms, contact your health care provider.


Since patient safety is of utmost importance, all unexpired lots of these products are being recalled until a thorough investigation can be completed. There are no other related recalls for Nurse Assist products.
