Camara Thomas5 years ago

About the Boxer Vascu-Guard Patch Recall

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) reports that patients may not be able to determine the difference between the soft side and the rough side of the patches, which is critical in properly using the product.

The FDA classifies this product as a Class 1 recall, meaning that if the patch is applied incorrectly, patients could experience potentially life-threatening events. These risks include movement of blood clots into the blood stream, reduced blood flow, stroke, organ failure, or death.

The FDA has received 51 complaints in connection with the faulty packages.
