An Italian medtech sterilization company falsified records of a variety of FDA-regulated products since 2016, the agency said today.

The company, Steril Milano, falsified graphs and parameters of sterilization certificates for devices processed at its Reggiolo and Monza ethylene oxide (EtO) plants, the FDA said.

Steril Milano on March 9, 2021, announced the temporary closure of the Monza and Reggiolo sites for further investigations following a review of operating procedures. The company said that it has taken steps to strengthen the quality control processes at its Biassonno site. Steril Milano’s certifying body has suspended the certification for its Italian sites, the company added.
