FDA issues Class I recall for Minnesota-made brain probe

Al's Comment:

 This is a rare occurence - happening about 12 times out of 1,800.  The cause was identified and they are fixing the problem, and letting the doctors know about it so they can watch for it and prevent problems.  I feel it is still a good treatment as this device is used for "inoperable" tumors that will most likely kill the patient without the treatment, so it is still worth the small risk.
