FDA issues alert against using plastic syringes made in China

The Food and Drug Administration this week announced users should transition away from using plastic syringes made or distributed by Chinese manufacturers Jiangsu Caina Medical, Jiangsu Shenli Medical Production, Shanghai Kindly Enterprise Development Group and Zhejiang Longde Pharmaceutical. The FDA initiated the recall after Jiangsu Shenli Medical Production initiated a recall to stop using its unauthorized plastic syringes. The FDA continues to evaluate other Chinese-made plastic syringes and recommends not using them, if possible. (FDA alert, 5/17/24)
