The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has issued an alert over diathermy (electrosurgical) cables manufactured by Unomedical.
Certain batches of cables, used to connect Unomedical electrosurgical instruments to generators, have been supplied in mislabelled boxes.
Boxes labelled with the code 3508M may contain a cable with the code 3405M, or vice versa.
The two cables have different sized and shaped connectors and therefore cannot be used interchangeably.
Details of the affected batches can be found at the MHRA website.
