This is second MRI related recall for GE, while the first one for Siemens in 2015
Singapore: FDA has recalled nearly 10,000 GE and Siemens MRI machines, classifying the recalls under second serious Class II category-meaning the affected machines "may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences."
Following recall, GE sent a letter to the affected customers and said that the corrective action is "a 5-minute, free, double-check of the software version on the MRI system, performed by a GE Field Engineer," quoted a news agency.
Siemens recalled its Magnetom MRI systems earlier this month due to a component that was nonconforming the FDA's Good Manufacturing Practice regulations. This is second MRI related recall for GE, while the first one for Siemens in 2015.
