Fresenius Liberty Cycler Recall
A Class II recall was issued for the Fresenius Liberty Cycler on November 5, 2013. The Liberty Cycler is a home-operated dialysis machine used by patients with diabetes to help cleanse their blood of toxins. According to the recall notice published by 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.”
Peritonitis is a serious infection of the lining of the abdominal cavity, known as the peritoneum, and is especially dangerous for patients who have preexisting medical conditions such as diabetes. Even with medication and, in some cases, surgery, peritonitis may be fatal.
This most recent recall is not the first time the FDA has taken action to ensure the safety of the Fresenius Liberty Cycler. Recalls for this device were also issued in August and February of 2013, as well as in March 2012. While the 2012 recall concerned a software issue that could lead to overfill of the machine with dialysate, both previous 2013 recalls were ordered to address a potential leak in the cassette portion of the device.
