A July 8 article, “Repositioning reprocessing”, incorrectly cited an FDA statement about in-house reprocessing of reusable medical devices. It was not about third-party reprocessing of single-use devices, the subject of the article. An FDA official said in 2006 that “available data show that (single-use devices) can be reprocessed with a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness.”
