OTTAWA, ON, June 15, 2024 /CNW/ -


Baxter Connector (CNW Group/Health Canada (HC))

Affected products





Dianeal PD4 2.5% Dextrose 3,000 mL




Dianeal PD4 2.5% Dextrose 5,000 mL










Physioneal 40 2.27% Glucose 2,500 mL





Vantive ULC (a subsidiary of Baxter Corporation) is recalling certain lots of Dianeal and Physioneal peritoneal dialysis solutions because of possible leakage at the connection site . The affected lots were distributed in Canada between March 6, 2024, and May 29, 2024.

Dianeal and Physioneal are sterile peritoneal dialysis solutions used in hospitals and home settings to treat patients whose kidneys are not working properly.

Products with leakage at the connection site  may become contaminated, exposing patients to microbial contamination and an increased risk of peritonitis. Peritonitis is when the thin layer of tissue inside the abdomen, called the peritoneum, becomes inflamed. Symptoms of peritonitis include fever and chills, belly pain or tenderness, feeling bloated, upset stomach and vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea or constipation, extreme fatigue and confusion. Peritonitis can result in death.

Health Canada is monitoring the company's recall, and its implementation of any necessary corrective and preventative actions to prevent this issue from reoccurring. The Department will inform the public if any new health risks are identified.
