Affected products

  1. Medi-Vac CRD Suction Canister System
  2. Flex Advantage Kit

Reason

The item may be missing a one-way valve on the fluid input (patient port). The valve's function is to limit fluid from escaping during disposal, but only if the proper procedure for disconnecting the vacuum source is not followed. The valve does not contribute to the functionality of the flex advantage product during normal use and does not affect the collection and retention of fluid during use.
