On October 8, 2021, Cook Medical issued a global, voluntary recall of the Transseptal Needle and the Transseptal Needle with Catheter. This recall includes all unexpired lots for both of these products. The needles were recalled due to complaints of rust on the products. Use of affected products could result in increased procedural time and inflammatory reactions, including systemic reactions which may lead to permanent impairment or death.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet classified the recall. A complete list of products affected by this recall can be found below.

Transseptal Needles, including Transseptal Needles with Catheters, were found to have rust internally, externally, or both. To date, Cook Medical has received no reports of injury or illness related to this recall. Cook has received four complaints where the presence of rust was identified prior to patient contact. However, please be advised that the presence of rust may go undetected by the user. The FDA and other regulatory agencies around the world have been notified of this action.
