A batch of Coloplast's urology product Supraflow was packaged incorrectly, meaning parts didn't fit together. Two hospitals, respectively from the Netherlands and Russia, informed the medtech company of the mistake, leading Coloplast to recall the faulty devices.

"In July, we completed a voluntary recall of one of our Supraflow batches because a mistake during packaging had led to the trocar and catheter not matching in size. A total of 405 products were affected, and the risk pertaining to the mistake is very low, as one would typically just use a different catheter of the right size during an operation," Senior Media Relations Manager at Coloplast informs MedWatch.
