Symbios Medical Products, LLC sent its customers an urgent medical device recall notification urging them to return GoPump and GoBlockanaesthesia infusion pumps distributed between September 10 2012 and February 11, 2013. This recall is due to a part of the infusion pumps that may become displaced and cause anaesthetic toxicity among patients.

The GoPump and GoBlockanaesthesia infusion pumps are disposable, self-contained infusion systems that use an inflatable elastomeric reservoir to mechanically provide a pre-set dosage of prescribed solutions for post-operative pain management.In an effort to prevent further incident, the U.S. food and Drug Administration (FDA) has affixed its Class 1 tag to the Symbios recall effort, which classifies a product as having the potential for injury or death. Customers are asked to discontinue use of the product, fill out a verification form and return the product to the manufacturer.
