Medtronic today released an urgent field safety notice after receiving reports of 3 fires related to its Formula hemodialysis machines, though no injuries were reported related to the fires.

Bellco, who makes the devices, was acquired by Medtronic in February for an undisclosed amount, and folded into a newly created renal care solutions division.

The 3 events that led to the fires were reported from 3 separate machines, 1 during a disinfection cycle and 2 prior to patient use while switched on, according to the warning notice.
