G.O.L.F.F.-(Anti-Fog Solution for Endoscopes) 

Reason

As a result of an investigation following a customer complaint for the Golff-RO (G.O.L.F.F.-Anti-Fog Solution) lot no. 49691, we have uncovered that the labels on the sterile pouches may have an expiry date error of 2018-14. The outer boxes have the correct expire date: 2018-04, however, some pouches within these boxes have been labeled correctly with the correct expire date being: 2018-04 and some have been labeled incorrectly with the incorrect expiry date being 2018-14.
