A medical supply company is recalling BD (NYSE:BDX) Alaris infusion pumps — the third such recall for the pumps in the past few months, according to the FDA.

North Carolina-based Avante Health Solutions issued the Alaris pump recall March 24, 2021, because the bezel repair posts may crack or separate, leading to the inaccurate delivery of fluids to patients. The separation of one or more bezel repair posts could result in the free flow of fluids to patients, over- or under-delivery of fluids, interruption of fluid delivery, device leaks, device component burning or smoking and/or power supply failure or malfunction.
