Baxter announced it has initiated a voluntary recall of two lots of Clinimix (amino acid in dextrose) and one lot of Clinimix E (amino acid with electrolytes in dextrose with calcium) injection parenteral nutrition products after complaints of particulate matter found in the products.
Clinimix and Clinimix E are premixed sterile IV parenteral nutrition products that come in multi-chambered containers and are used as a caloric component and as a protein source in a parenteral nutrition program.
