The FDA recently recalled balloon catheters used to dissolve blood clots that were actually causing blood clots in the lungs and death. The defect was caused by the company mislabeling the balloon ports on the product which resulted in blood clots being dislodged and causing additional injuries.
The affected balloon catheters were used as early as June 6, 2014. You can find out more about whether a catheter used in your or a loved one's surgery is subject to the recall here.
