The fault can result in failure of the needle to retract fully after firing, leading to the risk of a needlestick injury to users or damage to your sampling site.

In the unlikely event that you are in possession of any of the above products you should return them to your pharmacist, GP or to the manufacturer where replacements should be provided.
