On September 14, 2011, Bracco released a customer letter to provide recent information regarding the voluntary recall of CardioGen-82 (Rubidium Rb 82 Generator).
The radiation detection investigation is still not complete. However, Bracco has agreed with the FDA to engage in various follow-up activities regarding the CardioGen-82 generators to effectuate a return to the marketplace. The exact timing of these efforts is unclear, but it most likely will not be before 2012. Bracco states that they will continue to provide updates regarding the status of this investigation.
