FDA warns reusable scope makers behind superbug outbreak
Los Angeles Business Journal

The Food and Drug Administration last week sent warning letters to three manufacturers of endoscopes that have been linked to a recent deadly “superbug” outbreak. In its strongest action yet against the device makers, the FDA said Olympus Corp., Pentax, and Fujifilm Holdings Corp. failed to report problems with the scopes as required by law and in some cases failed to ensure that the devices could be adequately cleaned, reported Bloomberg.
