Prefilled Carbetocin syringes

We have been advised of a batch of prefilled Carbetocin syringes that were prone to coring of the smartsite bung on TUTA giving sets resulting in the possibility of injecting the dislodged plastic. The issue appeared to be with the injection site of the syringe not being correctly formed.
It is recommended that vigilance is maintained and caution exercised while connecting the syringe to the giving set port.
The manufacturer has been contacted and updates will be provided if further information becomes available.
