MHRA issues warning over x-ray detectable gauze swabs

  • Comment

The MHRA has issued a warning over x-ray detectable gauze swabs.

Rocialle is recalling swabs from lot number 090901, which have been manufactured in two parts.

If unfolded and opened out completely only one part of the swab has an X-ray detectable strip attached. Therefore, if the part of the swab without this strip is left inside the patient, it will not be detectable by X-ray examination.
