3M Health Care has issued a product recall of specific lots of its 3M Comply Lead Free Steam Indicator Tapes. During a recent investigation, 3M confirmed some rolls of the affected lots failed to meet the visual standard for color development following exposure to steam sterilization. If the product fails to meet the color development visual standard, it could be interpreted that the pack had not been exposed to an adequate sterilization process. Affected product first shipped November 8, 2016.
