Mavidon Recalls LemonPrep, PediaPrep, Wave Prep, and Cardio Prep
Products manufactured in Mavidon’s Riviera Beach, Florida facility have been recalled for potential Burkholderia cepacia contamination.
Wednesday, January 15, 2020 - Medical supply manufacturer Mavidon has issued a voluntary recall of nearly all products manufactured in one of its facility after FDA testing discovered a bacterial called Burkholderia cepacia was found in samples of LemonPrep skin prep Dec. 19. Samples were taken from the facility Oct. 15, 2019.
Mavidon received a report of an infant who developed a B. cepacia infection after it was treated with LemonPrep. The FDA followed up on the report and found the drug-resistant bacteria in several samples of Mavidon products. Since the discovery, Mavidon has asked clinics and hospitals to stop using LemonPrep, PediaPrep, Wave Prep, and Cardio Prep manufactured at the Riviera Beach, Florida facility as a precautionary measure.
The recall was amended to remove Collodions, Collodion Remover, Acetone, and Medical Adhesive Remover from the recall. Those products can still be used, according to the company.
All lots of LemonPrep, PediaPrep and Wave Prep 4-ounce tubes and single use cups, as well as Cardio Prep single use cups are affected.
