Zimmer Biomet Recalls

Blog Zimmer Biomet Logo

The Zimmer Biomet Spinal Rod Cutters (00-3925-002-00) have been recalled (all lots), due to the potential for fracture during use. These cutters are primarily used in spine procedures to cut stainless steel rods. If the pin cutter were to fracture during use, it would be easily recognized. The highest severity event may result if the cutters were to fracture intra-operatively in an internal fixation procedure and a fragment creates a puncture wound that resulted in permanent impairment of a body function or damage to a body structure.
