Nicholas Wills4 years ago

Stryker has issued a Class 1 Recall of its Neptune Rover Waste Management System after receiving two reports of serious injuries, and one death.

About the Neptune Recall

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Stryker notified customers on June 5, 2012 that it was recalling the following products.
