The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last month required Baxter Healthcare Corp. to take specific steps to help customers replace Colleague infusion pumps recalled in April. Under the FDA order, Baxter must provide a refund or approved alternative product to customers by July 13, 2012. It must distribute by Sept. 13, 2010, a transition guide to help customers choose and transition to FDA-approved alternative products. Customers who wish to continue using recalled pumps during the transition period must return a "certificate of medical necessity" form to Baxter by Nov. 13, 2010.
