More Product Recalls ~ Smith & Nephew

I came across this article last night as I was reading through some articles on my MSNBC app...what is it about going to bed early that seems to end up with me reading things instead of sleeping?!?  In this case, I'm glad I did!  Safety trumps more sleep always!

Smith & Nephew is doing a voluntary recall on several of their products: REMOVE, UNI-SOLVE, SKIN-PREP, PERI-PREP, and NO-STING SKIN-PREP.  The specific lot numbers are listed here.

The lot numbers are not terribly obvious on the packaging...they are imprinted on the bottom edge of the actual wipes.  It took me a bit to find them...I'm sure the slight panic attack wasn't helpful!!

Thankfully the wipes we have are not part of the recall.  PLEASE take a minute to check your wipes if you use any of the listed products!

Here are the links, again, just in case you missed them in the post:

  1. Well crap... of course we have some of the affected uni-solve. Like I don't have enough things to do. Grumble, grumble, grumble.

    Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Seriously? Again? I swear I have every crappy LOT! There goes my uni-solve.(I just checked) In the last year I have had alcohol,skin prep, and cartridges recalled....

    No fun :(
