Acme Recalls Monaco Guidewire Due to Coating Flaking Off

The recalled item has a potential for the coating to flake off of the wire, and its use may result in serious adverse health consequences. Product codes included in this recall are 054372-1-1A, 054372-1-1B and 054372-1-2A.

The Acme Monaco Guidewire is designed to fit inside a percutaneous catheter for the purpose of directing the catheter through a blood vessel.
