Recall: Fresenius Liberty Cycler
The FDA issued a Class II recall on November 5, 2013 for the Fresenius Liberty Cycler home dialysis machine. The device is used by individuals who have diabetes to help remove toxins from their blood through the use of a chemical called a dialysate, but, according to the FDA, “Fluid leaking may be observed inside the pump compartment of the Liberty Cycler and may result in dialysate becoming contaminated, potentially causing peritonitis.”
As the name suggests, peritonitis is an infection that affects the peritoneum, which is the delicate lining of the abdominal cavity. Even with aggressive treatment or even surgery, peritonitis is very dangerous and may be fatal, especially for individuals who have already been weakened by a medical condition like diabetes.
The FDA has had to take action on numerous occasions to ensure that patients who use the Fresenius Liberty Cycler are safe, and this is the fourth recall issued for this device to date. A recall issued in February 2013, addressed a potential software issue that may bring about overfill of dialysate in the machines. Like this most recent recall, the second two recalls, issued in September and July of 2013, brought to light a potential leak in the device.
