Baxter International is recalling two lots of intravenous solution due to the potential presence of "particulate matter," which in each case was determined to be an insect.
Affected products include a 70% dextrose injection with an expiration date of July 31, 2016, and a 0.9% sodium chloride injection that expires on Nov. 30, 2016. The products were distributed in the U.S. and Canada between June 6 and December 16, 2015.
Approximately 284,000 individual units were involved in the recall.
This is the second recall for Baxter following insect complaints. A similar recall occured in July, when the company announced a voluntary recall of two lots of 0.9% Sodium Chloride IV solutions.
