18K saline vials recalled after they were accidentally sent

Medline Industries is recalling 18,000 units of saline solution because they didn't meet sterility standards but were "inadvertently shipped to customers," according to an FDA database

The recalled product is the Hudson RCI Addipak, unit dose vials, 5 milliliters sterile 0.9% NaCl solution for inhalation. The units were "dispositioned for scrap" but were accidentally distributed. It is unclear why the vials did not meet sterility standards. 

The FDA labeled the recall as Class I, the most serious type of notice, because use of the product could result in serious injury or death. Customers were warned about the recall in early August, according to the database.
