About US FDA Alert Regarding China Made Plastic Syringes Quality Failures


As per recent safety communication issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for consumers, health care providers, and health care facilities, FDA is evaluating the potential for device failures (such as leaks, breakage, and other problems) with plastic syringes manufactured in China.


Generally, a syringe is used to inject fluid into, or withdraw fluid from, the body and can be used in a variety of clinical and home health settings. Some syringes may also be used with infusion pumps to deliver fluids into the body in a controlled manner.


This alert was for Syringes used for injecting fluids into, or withdrawing fluids from, the body and not glass syringes, pre-filled syringes, or syringes used for oral or topical purposes.


FDA is aware of quality issues from recent syringe recalls, Medical Device Reports (MDRs), and additional complaints about syringes made at various manufacturing sites in China.


Quality issues reported have included leaks, breakage, and other problems after manufacturers made changes to the syringe dimensions. These quality issues may affect the performance and safety of the syringes.


The differing dimensions reportedly affected their use with syringe pumps, potentially resulting in pump performance issues like overdose, underdose, delay in therapy, and delays in occlusion alarms.


In one of the recalls by a leading US Company, it was found that the Single Use Sterile Syringes had the potential to leak blood or heparin back or from the syringe. There were also reports of an unknown black material inside the syringe. Use of the syringes, according to FDA, could cause serious adverse health consequences including sepsis and blood loss due to leakage,  or risks like incorrect heparin dosage.


The FDA is working with federal partners to further test syringes manufactured in China and may prevent syringes made in China from entering the United States.
