I just heard about this recall.

ReliOn disposable, hypodermic syringes manufactured by Tyco Healthcare Group and sold by Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores are being recalled due to possible mislabeling, which may result in an overdose as much as 2.5 times the intended dose. That could lead to serious health consequences and even death.

The ReliOn insulin syringes involved in the recall are labeled ReliOn 1cc, 31-gauge, 100 units for use with U-100 insulin, and are from Lot Number 813900. Approximately 471,000 syringes are subject to this recall.

The recalled syringes were sold at Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club stores from August 1, 2008 through October 8, 2008.
