The full safety alert is at the link provided and the recall report is posted on our recalls webpage. ISSUE: CareFusion is recalling the Alaris Syringe Pump because of a faulty Air-In-Line (AIL) sensor which may generate a false alarm, and cause the syringe pump to stop supplying the infusion to the patient.
