Bayer Trasylol Recall Information
Trasylol was developed for prophylactic use to reduce perioperative blood loss and the need for blood transfusion in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass in the course of coronary artery bypass graft surgery who are at an increased risk for blood loss and blood transfusion.
Why Trasylol has been recalled:
Trasylol has been linked to potentially fatal anaphylactoid or anaphylactic reactions. There have been fatal reactions within initial test doses as well as with components of the dose regimen. In addition, fatal reactions have occurred in situations where the test dose was tolerated. The risk for anaphylactic or anaphylactoid reactions is increased among patients with prior aprotinin exposure and a history of any prior aprotinin exposure must be sought prior to Trasylol administration. The risk for a fatal reaction appears to be greater upon re-exposure within 12 months of the most recent prior aprotinin exposure.
Simplicity Crib Recall
Simplicity Inc. has recalled about 40,000 Nursery-in-a-Box cribs due to fall and entrapment hazards to children. Additionally, the metal locking pins on the side of the crib can pop off and become a choking hazard.
