According to the FDA letter, Fresenius implemented design changes to the dialysis tubing set, including a change in a tubing segment from thick wall to thin wall, before distributing the device in the United States. In November 2010, Fresenius issued a recall of the device due to failure caused by the design changes.

The FDA has asked Fresenius to notify the agency of the specific steps they have taken to correct the violations within 15 working days working from the time they receive the letter.
