MaxPlus Needleless Connector

Reason

The recall is being conducted due to a lot specific defect, where after disconnection of a luer, the valve of the connector remains recessed; not fully closing, either temporarily or permanently. The risks of blood loss and air embolism exist if the valve remains permanently open and goes undetected, especially in the neonate population.
