Product Situation/BD Response
Situation: On April 20, 2021, BD conducted a voluntary recall on certain lots of the BD ChloraPrep™ Hi-Lite Orange™ 26 mL Applicator (930815) in the United States and U.S. Territories. For more details on the recall and affected lot numbers, please view this customer letter.
To Check 3mL Product Lots with the New Tyvek Packaging, Here Are Two Options:
Please note SKUs ending with NS were not subject to the 3mL recall. BD is updating the packaging of these SKUs from paper to Tyvek packaging to ensure consistency across the portfolio. This will be a rolling change.
BD ChloraPrep™ 1 mL Supply Interruption:
BD Response: BD has identified various potential short-term options to help mitigate these issues:
June 2021 substitution plan
July and beyond substitution plan
For allocation planning, BD will be using a conversion calculator of 2 cases of BD ChloraPrep™ 1 mL to 1 case of BD ChloraPrep™ Swabstick.
BD has prioritized the production and supply of the BD ChloraPrep™ 1 mL non-sterile bulk code to limit supply disruption for our kitting partners who service our customers. If you currently purchase kits containing BD ChloraPrep™ 1 mL from third party suppliers, you should only expect minimal impact to the BD ChloraPrep™ 1 mL NSB supply. It is important to note that your kitting partners may not be able to take on incremental demand of kits containing BD ChloraPrep™ 1 mL NSB beyond your typical order volume.
