The FDA issues its highest-risk Class 1 recall for blood kits made by Hospira after 1 patient's death was deemed partly due to delayed treatment after the piercing pin in the kit punctured the outer wall of the blood bag. The FDA issued a Class I recall on blood kits made by Hospira (NYSE:HSP) after the medical device company reported that at least 1 patient's death was partially due to a delay in treatment caused by a punctured blood bad.
